Kim's 'Language of Common Ground' on Display Feb. 21-Apr. 1

Jinchul Kim exhibitSALISBURY, MD---Jinchul Kim, Salisbury University professor of art, displays works showing similarities of humankind in the exhibit “The Language of Common Ground” Monday, February 21-Friday, April 1, in the University Gallery of Fulton Hall.

Kim speaks about his work during an artist talk 5 p.m. Thursday, March 3, in Fulton Hall Room 111. A reception follows.

A distinguished figurative painter, Kim’s most recent work explores the phenomenology of language, specifically the common ground humans are able to find despite differences in dialects. He combines multilingual text and psychologically complex cinematic scenes with “ghosts of vision” that disrupt an easy reading of his paintings. Through that calculated mix, his work evokes the liminal stage of college life as he observes it unfolding around him every day.
