작가설명

권기수는 한국화의 정신을 근간으로 다양한 매체를 사용하여, 현대적으로 재해석한 작품을 선보인다. 그는 조선채색화의 전통을 기반으로 화려한 색감을 선보이며, 작품의 중심인 ‘동구리’는 한국화의 먹선을 연상시키도록 검은색 선으로 표현하였다. 작품의 배경 역시 조선 산수화를 재구성함으로써 새로운 회화 읽기의 방식들을 제시한다. 작가는 ’구글 아티스트 프로젝트’와 미국에서 가장 권위 있는 장학재단 중 하나인 Fulbright Scholar-in-Residence에 선정되었으며, 상하이 Long Museum, 미국 Asian Art Museum in San Francisco 등 해외 주요 미술관에 작품이 소장되어 있다.
