Lot Details

"ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPE-Geometric Purple" (2011) is a stunning painting by one acclaimed Contemporary Korean female artist, Kim Jong-Sook, internationally acclaimed for her ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPE series of paintings. This work measures 27.56 x 27.56 inches (70 x 70 cm), is unframed and in perfect condition. In this series, the artist re-interprets traditional Korean landscape paintings in a singular manner, by archivally hand-applying thousands of colored Swarovski crystals to her purple, red and lavender painted canvas in geometric bands and patterns. She intentionally leaves areas of the canvas empty of ornament, while loading other areas with sparkling opulence, speaking to the wealth of many in "new Korea".

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.
