Mihee Nahm: Soaked

Women & Their Work

In meticulous paintings and watercolors of leaves, of rain, of mud, of other objects in the natural world, Mihee Nahm seeks to capture the ephemeral in all its transience. As the present endlessly slips into the past, Nahm’s images forever arrest the fleeting passage of time as it is manifested in nature. Subtle changes in the time of day, the weather, and mood capture the artist’s attention because they mirror her state of mind drawing us into similar reflections of longing and loss.
