Korean Contemporary Art has received notice as an important contemporary art movement, reintroducing itself as a realigned artist community who incorporates centuries of tradition into a diverse offering of ceramics and painting. Proudly, the Mindy Solomon Gallery represents talented South Korean artists—Sungyee Kim, Kang Hyo Lee, SunKoo Yuh (L) and Wookjae Maeng (R)—since the beginning.
Recently, we have expanded our Korean Art Program to include two distinguished ceramic artists from South Korea—In-Chin Lee and Ree Soo-Jong. In-Chin Lee’s work has been described by Yoo-Jae-gil, (Hong lk University Professor of Art Criticism), “The swelling forms of his jars and the rich colors of their surfaces particularly expose this unending depth.” (In-Chin Lee, above).
Ree Soo Jong begins his process by manually kneading soil into dynamic forms that reveal a raw and unprepared surface, thus preserving the natural look and feel of each piece. Both artists have been featured in galleries around the world and are often referred to as leaders in the ceramics art world. (Ree Soo Jong, above).
We look forward to introducing you to the inspirational works of In-Chin Lee (L) and Ree Soo-Jong (R) and happy to introduce you to a complete selection of works by our Korean artists.
The Mindy Solomon Gallery will be presenting “Meditative Journeys” featuring Sungyee Kim (L) and Lee Kang Hyo (R), FEB 25—MAR 31; Art Fairs: SCOPE NY, SOFA NY, artMRKT San Francisco featuring a diverse grouping of national and international artists; and we are consistently exploring traditional and progressive contemporary art forms.
We look forward to seeing you in the gallery. Please contact us for one-on-one consultation and learn more about our contemporary art program.
