Lot Details

"Reality + Image 709-775" (2007) is an important mixed media painting by Contemporary Korean artist Kim Kang-Yong. His monochromatic blue abstract paintings are very rare, with no blue painting at this size coming to international auction prior to this lot. This painting measures 29.5 x 29.5 inches (75 x 75 cm), and is unframed in excellent condition. The artist's 'brick' paintings are a conflation of Western postmodernism and traditional Asian technique and culture. With precision, discipline and logic, Kim Kang-Yong creates shifting and often collapsing grid-like brick walls, that each powerfully explore form, illusion, space and, ultimately, emptiness. The artist is represented by the elite Gallery Michael Schultz, Berlin, Beijing, and Seoul and his work was the subject of the 2012 solo show 'Reality + images" at the Berlin location.
