Gallery owner and artist Min Kim shares her love of quality fine art and imbues everything she does at Bryce Gallery with heart and soul. Bringing exhibitions together with artists who treasure well-crafted pieces, hosting regular workshops and painting herself, Min delivers a Florence-trained, classical ethos to Christchurch.
Min brings her passion for art to the selection of work that hangs in Bryce Gallery, Riccarton. With experience working as an interior designer in Korea, Min has a natural affinity for objects which are destined to bring joy to a living space. Originally built as a show home, Bryce Gallery unfolds like a modern house with rooms, walls and halls of varying sizes and heights where visitors can get a good sense of scale in regards to how a work might look in their own home.
Bryce Gallery has the great pleasure of announcing their second exhibition space on 47 Hereford Street this month. “We look forward to bringing more art to the city and introducing our wonderful artists to Christchurch visitors,” Min says. The central city location hosts a carefully curated collection of paintings and sculptural works, all immensely impressive in their detailed technical execution. Oil painter J. Stewart intrigues with scenes of mist-shrouded views of Fiordland, Milford Sounds and Canterbury-like plains, while Trevor Askin’s ‘curvilinear’ birds appear seemingly suspended in air. An enormous immaculately handcarved wooden whale by Kevin McCardell floats in the centre of the gallery and glorious paintings by Min Kim adorn the walls. While incredibly adaptable, Min Kim favours an impressionistic style, bringing a wealth of vibrant colours and deftly confident brush strokes to her scenes in both watercolour and oil.
Their bi-monthly workshop series are hosted each weekend and topics include drawing, oil and watercolour and a masterclass based on Joaquin Sorolla’s Woman Walking on the Beach. The classes offer a chance to be tutored by Min Kim and further explore the medium of your choice in a weekend of demonstrations, good company, scones and hours available to produce personal work.
