Works by Korean Women Artists

HK Art and Antiques presents an exceptional array of traditional and contemporary Korean paintings and sculptures. Based in New York since 2016, this gallery, under the direction of Heakyum Kim, is one of the foremost sources for fine Korean art.

HK Art and Antiques will showcase Korean women artists in their gallery space through Summer 2022. Three featured here are Wongsook Kim, Su Kwak and Sooyeon Hong.

Su Kwak was born in Busan in 1949. In 1973 she moved to the United States, where she received her MFA from the University of Chicago. Her art is in museum collections in Korea and the US, and in 2019 a retrospective exhibition toured the Brauer Museum of Art and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of art at the University of Oregon.

Wonsook Kim was born in Busan in 1953 and received her MFA from Illinois State University in 1976. Since then she has had numerous one-person and group exhibitions in Korea, the United States and Paris. Kim moved to the United States in the early 1970s and now lives and works in Maryland.

Sooyeon Hong was born in Seoul in 1967. She received her MFA from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, though she now lives and works in Seoul. Hong has featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and her works are in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea, the Seoul National University Museum of Art, and the Kumho Museum of Art among others.
