Lot Details

"ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPE-Geometric Purple" (2011) is a stunning painting by one of the most acclaimed Contemporary Korean artists working today, Kim Jong-Sook, gaining international acclaim for her ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPE series of paintings that combine paint and crystals, created in formal partnership with Swarovski. This work measures 27.56 x 27.56 inches (70 x 70 cm), is unframed and in perfect condition.The artist re-interprets traditional Korean ink brush landscape paintings in a singular manner, archivally hand-applying thousands of colored crystals to her purple, red and lavender painted canvas in geometric bands and patterns, leaving some areas empty of ornament, while loading other areas with sparkling opulence, that speaks to the new Korea and the increasing demand for luxury goods from the West there.

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.
