Byron Kim – Studio Visit | TateShots

Byron Kim is a painter born in California, who lives and works in Brooklyn. He invited us to his studio where he works quietly on a range of paintings primarily concerned with colour.
Here he shows us a number of works in progress — patches of sky distilled into tonal blocks; a detailed study of the palms of his hands – and demonstrates Delacroix’s Shadow, a piece that uses a real shadow to represent colour. An example of his celebrated Synecdoche series, which depicts skin tones, was shown at Tate Liverpool as part of the Colour Chart exhibition in 2009.
