“I consider my paintings to be a vehicle for my deepest emotions and fantasies so as to express themselves three dimensionally on a two dimensional surface”
Cindy Rhee Bong Keum is an experienced artist with international exposure. FromKorea originally but a long-term Hong Kong resident. She is best known for large figurative paintings on canvas both in oil and acrylic. She uses figures to explore the conflicting emotions and activities which structure human identity and interaction and her paintings are brightly coloured with confident brush strokes executed in an expressive and decisive manner.
"In particular, I love to paint people—I call myself a figurative artist, and specifically I love to paint faces because the face can tell you so many different emotions and it’s in the face you can see how each individual has lived their lives."
