Lot description
"Artificial Landscape: Hyacinth Ruby" (2011) is a visually meditative mixed media and Swarovski® crystal elements painting by acclaimed Korean artist Kim Jong-Sook. Dimensions: 51.18 x 51.18 inches (130 x 130 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 ruby-based palette, while also critiquing the insatiable desire for luxury goods by the moneyed class in Korea in a singular and sublime manner.
