About

Set of 6 hand sculpted ceramic donuts, glaze, Swarovski crystals, mixed media, wall sculpture, wall installation. Each sculpture is unique, signed and numbered on the back by the artist. Jae Yong Kim pays tribute to his Korean roots with his Chunghwa Baekja (traditional blue and white pottery) series. Employing his signature donuts as his canvas, Kim's ceramics are hand drawn Sehwa (Korean New Year's paintings) that depict intricate landscapes populated with birds, flora, and animals that traditionally hang in the front doorway to ward off bad spirits and promote good health, long life, wealth and fertility for the incoming year. Years of trial and error and learning from local masters has enabled Kim to successfully apply the traditional Chunghwa Baekja technique to his donuts. Through color, imagery and form, Kim's latest series is an homage to the three cultures that influenced the artist during his lifetime: Korea; traditional blue and white pottery, the Middle East; Persian carpets that frame his compositions, and the United States; for its brazen consumerism and gluttonous consumption. Kim combines various imagery and artistic techniques he culled from living on these different continents to tell a story about his search for identity and a familiar sense of home. A graduate of Hartford Art School (West Hartford, CT) and Cranbrook Academy of Art (Bloomfield Hills, MI), Jae Yong Kim has shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions including the Powerlong Museum in Shanghai, China, HuanTai Museum, Jangsu, China, Fondation d’Entreprise Bernardaud, Limoges, France, Boise Museum of Art, Boise, ID, Hermitage Museum & Gardens, Norfolk, VA, Museum of Art & History, Lancaster, CA, University Gallery, University of Bridgeport, CT, American University Museum, Washington DC. Kim's work is featured in the collection of the Han Hyang Lim Ceramic Museum in Korea, and the Powerlong Museum in Shanghai, China among others. contemporary art, ceramic, sculpture, donuts, installation, wall art, swarovski crystals, clay, glaze, installation art, blue and white donuts, sehwa
