Lot description
"ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPE-Geometric Purple" (2011) is a visually meditative acrylic, mixed media and Swarovski® crystal elements painting by acclaimed Korean artist Kim Jong-Sook. Dimensions: 27.55 x 27.55 inches (70 x 70 cm), unframed, in excellent condition. This work belongs to the artist's iconic ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPE series where she hand-applies hundreds of tiny, shimmering Swarovski crystal elements to canvas, a Zen process for both artist and viewer. Kim re-interprets traditional Korean landscape paintings, here in a lush amethyst and purple-based palette, while also critiquing the insatiable desire for luxury goods by the moneyed class in Korea in a singular and sublime manner.
