HONG KONG---Christie’s announces "Constructive Units: Korean Modern and Contemporary Art," a new private sale exhibition which will run from 29 October to 18 December 2014 at the James Christie Room, Alexandra House. This exhibition features 28 of the latest works from five artists: Choi So-Young (B. 1980), who will be exhibiting her work publicly for the first time in four years, Chung Doo-Hwa (B. 1968), Hong Kyoung-Tack (B. 1968), Kim Dong-Yoo (B. 1965) and modern master Rhee Seundja (1918-2009). Kim Dong-Yoo creates images from a series of smaller images. By employing multiplication of small “pixels” within a larger image, Kim orchestrates a masterful control of tonal gradient to create a larger, final portrait. [link]
