Art on Display in the LSS Learning Lab

Laura Hyunjhee KimIf you’ve recently visited the LSS Learning Lab in 259 Van Hise, you may have noticed some colorful new additions to the walls. Laura Hyunjhee Kim, a UW-Madison junior majoring in art, has been invited to display her work in the first-ever Learning Lab student art exhibit.

Ms. Kim was born in California and moved to Korea at the age of nine.
She returned to the U.S. in 2006 to attend UW-Madison. She initially
enrolled as a biology major and was studying to become a veterinarian,
but never forgot her dream of becoming an artist. Now she is majoring
in art.

“Drawing with pen and coloring the spaces with bright colors is what I love to do,” writes Ms. Kim. “The emotions of passion and joy are frequently incorporated in my paintings. Through the use of bright palettes of colors such as red and yellow, I try to convey a strong impact on the viewers. As if they are seen through a prism, the various hues of paint blend together forming their own kind of unique spectrum of colors.”

For the exhibit Ms. Kim has produced two large works with acrylic
paint; six small works with pastel, oil pastel, watercolor pencil, pen;
and ten photographs capturing the scenery and people of Madison.

LSS is grateful to Ms. Kim for brightening up the lab and providing visual interest to patrons. The exhibition will continue through this semester and may be enjoyed any time the Learning Lab is open.
