Una Kim: gestures

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday December 25
Nine Gallery
122 NW 8th Ave.
 
Una Kim’s exhibition, gestures, is a mishmash of incongruous elements. Figures, heads and Kanji characters jostle against one another, vainly searching for cohesion. The technique is facile, the placement of motifs arbitrary. On the four walls of Nine’s boxy exhibition space, Kim’s unstretched canvases have the unfinished look of street art or bad craft. In a world with too many artists competing for too few eyes, this exhibition should be seen by young people contemplating art careers. It would do a superb job of discouraging them from joining the glutted ranks of this highly impractical vocation. Through Dec. 30.
