Ja Soon Kim for Anaak

A reflection of her Santa Fe surroundings, Korean artist Ja Soon Kim is instantly warm and intentional — traits that have, over time, steered Ja Soon into the direction of her art. Master of natural installation, Ja Soon creates still lives from collections of flowers, seedpods and wood foraged from her local environment. Finding peace in the process of gathering and arranging, she likens her craft to the philosophy of Yoga: considered and with patience.

We were also treated to a guided tour through one of her favourite landscapes Plaza Blanca, where photographer Greta van der Star captured Ja Soon wandering around the smooth, wind-molded rock formations, stopping to collect rocks and branches along the way.
