“After nearly two wonderful months exploring punk music of the last 20 years, Lost Origins is starting it's fall programming with exciting local artist Tom Kim. He presents to us the narrative series: Milk Relics.
Milk Relics tells the post-apocalyptic story of our society at the precipice of environmental collapse.
The works in this solo exhibition reflect Tom's experience both working professionally, in illustration and animation, and exhibiting as a Korean American painter. The style and composition are inspired by classical Western oil painting, traditional Eastern imagery, and contemporary illustration.
’This warning series is meant to inspire action through a profoundly playful appreciation of our surroundings and each other. The apocalypse is best served with cookies.’ - Tom Kim”
In the spirit of a DC creative community alliance, over 30 local DC musicians, poets, and writers performed live in conjunction with the exhibition in 16 artist curated events throughout the entire month of September 2019. Musical genres spanned classical, folk, indie pop, electronic, and acoustic hip hop.
