Lot description
Emerging Contemporary Korean artist Kim Young Jin (Korea, b. 1976) continues his series of elaborately detailed, highly imaginative scenes of action and chaos in black and white. Each work within this series features a mode of transportation that is deconstructed and hybridized with mechanical and human forms emerging from every angle. Here in "Acopt..ter..He..Hellico..copter" (2008) the artist depicts a helicopter held together with morphing human and animal forms. Reminiscent of Western Mideval paintings and Surrealistic scenes, Kim Young Jin combines an Eastern background with Western influences and comments on the mechanization of the human form. This work measures 23.62 x 35.43 inches and is unframed in excellent condition.
