The importance of being hands on and self-sufficient are important factors in his work. Driven by a compulsive need to experiment in his waterfront Redhook studio, Pat is constantly creating works that build on self taught techniques and those gleaned from traditional craft. His works span the gamut between art to the functional, in three and two dimensions.
His studio practice reflects a creative conflict of philosophies: Oscillating between pure form exploration and tight functional pieces; between carefully planned, purposely executed pieces and expressive experiments in material and method.
Pat Kim Studied Industrial Design at the Pratt Institute, with a short stint at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. He lives and works in the Redhook neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.
