Kim Yeon Ok

김연옥

Kim Yeon-ok was born in 1960 Incheon, South Korea and graduated from the Kyungki University with a major in Art & Design. She received a number of awards and her work has been exhibited at over 30 exhibitions and art fairs worldwide. Art critic Lee Kyung Mo reviewed her art in following words:
“Kim Yeon Ok has been searching for the possibility of a new communication, by bridging the gap between the traditional motifs and timely criticism in her own work, in which she achieved formal completeness. Her personal style is to attach folded cotton cloth at regular intervals. She is an alchemist, who raised the vulgar value to the level of sublimity.”

這位藝術家於1960年出⽣生於仁川,畢業於 韓國京畿⼤大學的藝術與設計 專業。她獲得了多項獎項, 她的作品也曾在全球 30 多個 展覽和藝術博覽會展出。藝術評論家李敬莫這樣回顧 她的藝術:
“這位藝術家⼀直在尋找⼀個新的溝通方式的可能性,柔合傳統的圖案和現世時事,在她⾃⼰的作品中,她取得了絕對的完整性。她將棉絮折疊並有規則地繫上,衍出奇妙的風格。她比一位煉金術士,將庸俗的價值昇華到崇高的水平,將韓國圓形的傳統形像與現代的有趣元素和諧地溶會在一起。”
