As the 2017 InLiquid Benefit approaches, we are excited to showcase the exclusive pieces to be sold at our silent auction. In preparation for our Main Event, we encourage our fellow philanthropists and art collectors to pay it forward by celebrating their current art collection in tandem with supporting their local arts organization.
And now for something completely different: April Wanders by Kim Ahrong is a 9″ x 12″ stoneware, porcelain, luster, metal, and resin sculpture, as well as a study in psychology. Kim is an artist that makes sculptures based on human interaction, thought, and individual experience. Her pieces are multilayered forms, much like the human mind, in which she explores the complexity of emotion and the depth of feeling through abstract shapes and a collage of colors. Her sculpture, April Wanders, is an imaginative work, its peculiar and quirky design making it unlike anything else.
Kim Ahrong received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Ceramics in 2008 from Kon Kuk University in Korea. She then pursued a Masters in Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in Providence, RI in 2013. Since then, she has exhibited work in both solo and group exhibitions from across the globe, spanning from Seoul, California, New York, and Philadelphia. Currently, she lives and works at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia as an Artist in Residence, where she has had the solo exhibition, Internal Voice.
