Mihee Nahm’s exhibition Soaked includes paintings and drawings depicting detailed glimpses of landscapes she encounters on her daily walks. Nahm captures a sense of poignancy found in nature on rainy days and at night, evoking bittersweet feelings of melancholy and the fleeting passage of time. Her emotive, lifelike rendering conjures the scent of rain, the feeling of weather changes, and the moods that each brings.
Mihee Nahm was born and raised in South Korea until the age of sixteen when she moved to the United States. In America, she took her first painting class which compelled her to pursue art. Living as a foreigner in America for over a decade pushed her to explore themes of memory, sense of place and nostalgia. Mihee Nahm holds an MFA from the University of Texas at Austin, and a BFA from Art Academy of Cincinnati. She has attended residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and Brush Creek Foundation. She currently lives and works in Grapevine, Texas.
