Crystal artist Kim KototamaLune creates ethereal sculptures that resemble abstract organic shapes and faces. He builds delicate glass grilles without molds, which he then works in sculptural form and shows in dark rooms. This presentation allows the light to penetrate, which illuminates the sculptures from within and casts dramatic shadows on the surrounding walls.
The artist was born in Vietnam and now lives and works in France, and has studied several languages. The cultural identity, the origins of life and the intermediate spaces are his inspirations. KototamaLune shares with Colossal that it seeks to create an “unknown territory to engage in a silent dialogue with the ‘strangers’ who live in us.These sculptures arise from the desire to recover within each of us what is common in our fetal origins.”
KototamaLune is represented by Da-End Galerie, with whom she will present her work at the ASIA NOW art fair in Paris from October 17 to 21, 2018. She can also see her work until September 15, 2018 at the Villa Art Center Tamaris in south of France. Discover more sculptures in the KototamaLune portfolio on its website.
