A selection of exquisite Korean period and contemporary ceramics are coming to the Fort Mason Center, for the 37th San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show.
A regular exhibitor at the fair, New York-based dealer Don Joint of The Orange Chicken Gallery has conceived this year’s presentation at his booth to be entirely of Korean ceramics: period, modern, as well as contemporary, reflecting his long time passion as a collector of this genre.
Anchoring the exhibit will be a large selection of works by leading contemporary practitioner Park Young Sook (b. 1947). Park is world renown for revitalising the ceramic art traditions of the Joseon Dynasty (ca. 1300 - 1900), the technical mastery and dedication of which are evident in her contemporary Moon Jars pieces. Park’s work is in the permanent collections of countless institutions, including Asian Art Museum of San Francisco (San Francisco, CA), Seattle Art Museum (Seattle, WA), and Victoria and Albert Museum (London, UK). The gallery’s offerings at the fair include Park’s collaboration with the internationally-recognized Dansaekhwa and Mono-Ha master Lee Ufan -- porcelain plates and tea service that capture a heightened sense of contemporary Asian minimalism applied to functional art. Offering a counterpoint to Park’s reserved aesthetic are monumental works by Lee Kang-hyo (b.1961) in a manner that combines Korean Onggi and Buncheong techniques. While adhering to the tradition of gray stoneware decorated with white slip, the spontaneity of Lee’s colors and contemplative forms capture a modern spirit. Lee’s work is held in numerous public and private collections including British Museum (London, UK), and Victoria and Albert Museum, (London, UK), Museum of Fine Arts (Boston, MA), and Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL).
Three important period ceramic pieces from the 16th century through the 19th provide the historical reference points for the contemporary materials; on offer will be a large 16th century Moon Jar in white, a 16th century white porcelain bottle vase, and an early 19th century large buncheong vase inlaid with flowers and bees.
