Art: Be beckoned into the dream-like, pencilled world of Dukhoon Gim

It’s pleasant to escape to a pencilled world of meadows and willow trees when you’re in an office all day, which is probably why Dukhoon Gim’s images appeal so much to us. Rather than a showcase of skill and dedication with no real idea behind it – which so often hyper-real art can be – Dukhoon’s images have these weird little touches to them that tempt you to lean in even further. A bit like the girl in the painting in The Witches, there are tiny characters lost in these drawings, added on as if afterthoughts, that beckon to you to come and join them on their inflatable whale, or whatever it is they’re playing with. Don’t mind if I do.
