Using studies of perspective as a starting point, in the groups of work entitled “Angles of Color” and “Angles of Perspective”, Shinae Kim assigns colour to the angles of a room, according to the refraction of light by a prism and defines these as shapes characterised by differing shape and length. Thus she translates colour first into a spatial representation which she subsequently transforms into the two-dimensionality of a sheet of paper. In “Angles of Paper” she radicalises this approach by renouncing any kind of graphic representation of space. The sheet of paper and its format take up the role of space in which the colours assume their roles of independent, two-dimensional forms.
