Lot Details

"Departure - Nocturne in Pink" (2012) is custom framed and in excellent condition. The dimensions as framed are: 26 1/2 x 45 1/2 x 2 inches

"Departure - Nocturne in Pink" is a stunning realist oil portrait painting by famed Contemporary Korean born and educated artist, Jinchul Kim. Kim's stunning portraits tend to focus on a lone figure in a narrative loaded with a sense of foreshadowing and mystery, usually depicting a young woman as protagonist, as seen here. The loose gestural brushstrokes in bright pink are an exciting new element in Kim's oeuvre, referencing traditional Korean ink brush and calligraphy in an exciting and fresh manner

Kim is internationally famous for his intense realist paintings particularly of young American women who are captured in the midst of a specific yet undisclosed physical and emotional situation. Kim's titles and compositions are subversive and balance the intentionally superficial and precise manner in which he paints, resulting in a sense of voyeurism and desire for the viewer to decipher the situation at hand. Jinchul Kim received both his BFA and MFA in Fine Arts Painting at King Sejong University, Seoul, Korea. He currently lives and works in Washington D.C. USA. His work has been the subject of Museum, Gallery and Fine Art Exhibitions in his native South Korea, Europe and the U.S. and is in top Private and Corporate collections in Asia, Europe and the U.S. The artist presently lives and works in the Washington D.C. region, U.S.
