South Korean artist, Rim Lee, finds primary source material within the realms of performance and photography. Her oeuvre focuses on the intensity of human emotions. Lee’s works emphasize a visualization of the conceptual values of inherent human emotions. The artist provides a portrayal of human sentiment within the context of art discourse. Lee was recently nominated for the Perrier Jouet Award. Her works have been exhibited at Seoul Museum, the Space Can Beijing, the Korean Eye Exhibit at MAD in NYC, Saatchi Gallery in London and selected international art fairs including Art Chicago, Scope Miami and Art Miami.
Inspired by an organic process, Lisa’s work has been included in numerous group shows across the US and Germany, including: White Columns in New York, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston Texas and Lothringer Dreizehn in Munich. Her abstract paintings aren’t bound by the limits of formalism of self-imposed constraints on subject matter. Textural, iconic, layered and geometric works are free from a singular aesthetic. Tone and mood are the common denominators linking paintings to each other. Caccioppoli currently lives and works in New York.
Southern Germany native, Tina Tahir, works in a variety of media, exploring the concept of impermanence. She has recently received the Art Slant juried artist showcase award for installation and was shortlisted in the Georgia Fee Artist/Writer Residency in Paris. Her work has been featured at the SCA Contemporary Art and Artlab in Albuquerque, NM, the Hyde Park Art Center, and EXPO Chicago, among many others. Tahir currently lives in Chicago.
Getting into the mind of an artist is what can make an artwork so beautiful. The story may resonate with you or take on a whole new meaning in and of itself. Having global style doesn’t mean every corner of the home has to be filled with exotic finds. Our designers emphasize focusing on one statement piece for lasting impact. Most of all a home should reflect you and the things you love. Global artwork provides rich visual interest that can be used in modern, transitional and traditional spaces. Unexpected elements can be incorporated to influence any style, adding flair.
