Jae Yong Kim: Donut Ever Forget Me


South Korean artist Jae Yong Kims installation Donut Ever Forget Me is made up of hundreds of hand-sculpted and intricately painted donuts. Each one is unique, and is topped with a high-gloss glaze. Kim views each of the donuts as a diminutive painting, with their decorated surfaces invoking the paint splatters of Jackson Pollock or the mesmerizing dot patterns of Yayoi Kusama. These labor-intensive pieces, each of which requires multiple firings in the kiln, can take several days to complete.
