Joo Ji Wan Celadon and White Stoneware Octet

Lot 17: Joo Ji Wan Celadon and White Stoneware Octet

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Joo Ji Wan's meditative groups of celadon and white stoneware cubes reference Korea?s ancient tradition of geometric patterns in a contemporary form. This set, recently displayed at the Korea Society exhibition, Korean Contemporary Ceramics, is the last of Joo Ji Wan's iconic and widely-published ceramic cube sets, as the artist moves on to other projects and ideas. This set was featured on the cover of the exhibition catalogue. Joo Ji Wan's work was also in From The Fire: Contemporary Korean Ceramics, an historic traveling exhibition of works by 54 of Korea?s best contemporary ceramic artists. It has traveled to major museums all over the world, and is the most important exhibition ever mounted on Korean contemporary ceramics. The artist given the very prestigious honor of having her work chosen for the front and back covers of the beautiful hardcover exhibition catalogue was Joo Ji Wan. In fact, her work alone was also chosen for the cover of all brochures and literature related to this most important exhibition, and so has become the symbol of contemporary Korean ceramics. So it is with great pride that the Korean Art and Antiques gallery announces that we are representing Joo Ji Wan, Korea?s leading celadon and porcelain artist. Her work has been exhibited at a long list of major museums, including the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, Yale University Art Gallery, Freer/Sackler Gallery of Art, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Harvard University Art Museum, Detroit Institute of Arts, Saint Louis Museum of Art, Newark Museum, American Craft Museum, Portland Art Museum, Society for Contemporary Crafts, Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Seattle Asian Art Museum, Vancouver Art Museum, Royal Ontario Museum, and many others. It is appropriate that Joo offers her work in sets that are described with musical terms, such as Duo, Trio, Quartet, etc. Musical metaphor is almost required in describing Joo?s inlaid celadon and porcelain cube sets. Consider the melodic interplay of the pieces within a set, the rhythm of the patterns that are inlaid in each piece, and the harmony of the set as a whole. Just as music is mathematical but should not be predictable, Joo?s forms are simple, mathematically fundamental cubes that are inlaid with labyrinthine surprises rooted in Korea?s ancient tradition of geometric patterns imbued with centuries of meaning. Artistic innovation deeply rooted in Korea?s long celadon and porcelain tradition is what puts Joo Ji Wan at the vanguard of Korean art today. Each cube: 5.25 inches, 13.25 cm.

Early 20thC Portrait of Jeong Mong Ju by Hyeon Gok

Lot 25: Early 20thC Portrait of Jeong Mong Ju by Hyeon Gok

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Early 20th Century Portrait of Jeong Mong Ju (aka Poeun) by Hyeon Gok (aka Dohwa Sanin), active 1920's and 30's. Jeong Mong Ju is one of the most important figures in Korean history. He was assassinated in 1392 for refusing to betray his loyalty to the outgoing Goryeo court and for his rejection of overtures from the incoming Joseon court. There is now a national monument on the spot where he was murdered on Sonjukkyo Bridge in Gaeseong, North Korea. Jeong Mong Ju's death marked the symbolic end of the Goryeo Dynasty. He remains revered throughout Korea, and portraits of him are very popular. This is a very well-executed and fine example of traditional Korean portraiture. This was painted during the Japanese occupation of Korea, and so would have served as a surreptitious inspiration for Koreans to remember Jeong Mong Ju and remain loyal to Korea, and do not give up, during those very difficult days, on the dream of Korean independence. Frame: 32.5 x 25 inches, 82.5 x 63.5 cm; Painting: 28 x 20.5 inches, 71 x 52 cm. There are reflections in the glass that are a byproduct of the photography and are not in the actual painting, such as the reflection of the camera lens that creates the spot under the eye on your left side and along the cheek's edge on your left side, and the diagonal line that starts at the bottom left corner of his robe. That is a reflection of the camera tripod.
