Kim Le is entering Winthrop University for her freshman year, studying Fine Arts and Sculpture.

Le tackles the uncomfortable space between adolescence and adulthood and the inability to let go of our childhood comforts through the use of soft toys and shiny trinkets. Such colorful and cuddly pieces give an inviting and playful first impression, but upon closer inspection, their excessiveness morphs the comfort item's universal ability to invoke feelings of nostalgia and security into something much more unsettling and perverse.
