Lot description
"Alex in Fog" (2013) is one of the most sublime and exciting figurative oil paintings that stands as a major, new example of the work of U.S. based, Korean Contemporary artist Jinchul Kim. This work measures 20 x 24 inches, is framed to slightly larger dimensions and is in perfect condition. Kim's ongoing series of realist oil portraits of young American women have garnered him international acclaim. Each painting by Kim reveals emotional and psychological tension underneath their superficial beauty, engaging the viewer in a game of reveal-conceal, where the cinematic-inspired compositions and narratives are never fully disclosed.

Jinchul Kim was born and raised in South Korea, where he earned a BFA and MFA from King Se-Jong University in Seoul Korea concentrating on painting. The artist moved to the US in 1989 and in 1993, he received another MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. His work is held in select public and private collections in Asia, Europe and the U.S. The artist presently lives and works in Washington D.C. US.
