Lot description
"ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPE-Iridescent Copper" (2011) is a stunning acrylic, Swarovski® crystals and mixed-media painting on canvas by internationally acclaimed Contemporary Korean female artist Kim Jong-Sook. She is gaining global recognition for her ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPE series of paintings that re-interpret traditional Korean landscape paintings with modern materials, namely hundreds of hand-applied Swarovski® crystals here to a copper-hued monochromatic acrylic canvas. The artist is influenced by both the new 'shimmering' modern-day Korea and the increasing private wealth there, as well by the mixed-medium works by Western Contemporary artists such as the Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Mickalene Thomas and poured diamond photographs by Vik Muniz, among others. This work measures 39.37 x 39.37 inches (100 x 100 cm), is unframed and in perfect condition.

The artist was born and raised in South Korea, and graduated with her BFA, MFA, and a Doctoral Degree in arts from Hongik University, South Korea. Her mixed media paintings have already appeared in numerous solo and group Museum and Gallery exhibitions throughout Asia, Europe, and the U.S. including the Zaha Museum of Art, Seoul; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai, China; The Huangcheng Art Museum, Bejing, China; The Saga Museum of Contemporary Art, Japan; and WHITE BOX Gallery, Los Angeles, U.S. Her works are held in the permanent collections at the Mogam Museum of Art and The Hoseo National Museum of Contemporary Art. The artist lives and works in Korea.
