March 17-April 6

This Asia Week season, HK Art and Antiques presents an exceptional array of traditional and contemporary Korean paintings and sculptures. Based in New York since 2015, this gallery, under the direction of Heakyum Kim, is one of the foremost sources for fine Korean art.

Wonsook Kim (b. 1953), Shadow a Bird, 2006, bronze

One of the highpoints of the exhibition is this bronze sculpture called Shadow of a Bird, by contemporary artist Wonsook Kim, who was born in Busan in 1953 and now lives in Illinois. She is known for story-based figurative paintings and sculptures that are poetic and ethereal in their fluid execution and mythical subject matter.
