Visual artist Kim Morski examines human nature through the lens of real-life historical and political events. Printmaking provides a conceptual and material framework for her artistic practice, which includes works on paper, artists books, handmade objects, and participatory public projects. She constructs indeterminate narratives, based on specific circumstances and people, that explore the relationship between the individual and the community in terms of human identity and agency. Her concern lies in the personal stories that are present within larger socio-political structures, where circumstances are often beyond the individual’s control. While linked to the rich, democratic tradition of political commentary and protest through printmaking, Morski takes a decidedly poetic approach to grappling with conflict and uncertainty.
