[Shenzhen] Painting show: Combining Eastern and Western elements
Latest Updated by 2007-03-13 10:58:03

The works of South Korean artist Kim Min-jung represent an organic mixture of Eastern and Western elements by her peculiar artistic techniques.

Born in Gwangju in South Korea in 1962, Kim studied Oriental painting and calligraphy in her early years, which allowed her to understand fundamental concepts of the Oriental art tradition.

Kim moved to Italy for further study at the Brera Academy in Milan in 1991, which prompted her to approach Western conceptual art.

In her works made on overlaid layers of rice paper, Kim burned sections of them to generate an effect of three-dimensionality to provide the viewer with a chronological dimension, and to indicate layers of time symbolized by the layers of paper.
