Sept 19 – Oct 19, 2008


perhaps best known (to some) as the longtime better half of JOE BRADLEY – Eunice surpassed expectations and rocked the scene with her first all-EUNICE ONLY !! outing !! word that 500 homemade funny-tasting magic brownies
were in easy reach to all takers – was just the icing on the cake !! Eunice literally covered the walls with open-ended & completely off-the-wall art !! – and bounced the gallery goers into a total alternative 360 degrees blow-out visual/spatial experience.

the card for: EUNICE KIM – ‘Moon the Magic Loser’, Sept 19-Oct 19, 2008. CANADA.
ok. we missed the opening !!
first of all – I dunno the card – didn’t kinda rock us. it looked a little too hokey, homey & crafty. mistake.
two. we had a paying gig – somewhere else, just as good in Brooklyn. what can I say unless someone clones us, or pays us enough – to jump in a cab to make it all the way back to Canada in Chinatown – good luck, artlovers !!

but, we did know enough of seeing Eunice’s work in small group shows, and really liking her in person, to know we should get down to see the show, at a better time !!
first thing – we noticed on the gallery communal table – a selection of hardcover one-of-a-kind books by BRIAN BELOTT.

then we noticed this strange little new age drawing hanging on a rough piece of cardboard, forlornly from the ceiling !!

Eunice # 6
then we noticed the whole gallery was basically, literally, covered from wall to ceiling with paper, where objects ‘found’ and man-made, moved in and out of space and perception. feelings, and concepts, and graspings of Eunice’s longing to re-define art, galleries, plastic space, objects. art product, non-product, consumerism, non-consumerism, our times, and the world !! took shape, took over – and we just gave into the rich, often startling, kind of crazy tipsy transparent, wavering & contrary 3-D experience.

individual pieces within the wavering almost camo (flage) shallow plasticity – became signaled as ‘product’ with names and prices – just the way your eye starts to pick out shapes as it adjustments to the dark in a new nighttime setting. the broom within the horizontal freestanding metal circle thus, is: ‘Old Friend’, 2008, mixed media, 61 x 36 x 36 in. ($4,000).

EUNICE KIM. there were a lot of homemade, man-made one-of-a-kind light fixture/designer sculptures shown last year, including, notably ANDY COOLQUIT at LISA COOLEY. Eunice had some, too. several in fact.

Eunice # 15
not quite a lamp fixture, but luminous all the same. EUNICE KIM, ‘Sigmund’s Request’, 2008, mixed media, 32 x 23 x 21 in. ($3,000) – yo !! a steal – hope some dumbass was smart enough to jump for that !!

Eunice # 18

a last look – a sad, plaintive little human-faced piece of saved-from-extinction !! cardboard, waving in the creative mad-within-a-purpose thrown-up against the wall – EUNICE KIM installation – ‘Moon the Magic Loser’.
