CHO DUCK HYUN


조덕현(b.1957)은 서울대학교 회화과 및 동대학원을 졸업하였으며, 회화와 설치를 주요매체로 작업한다. 20세기 초반 한국 근현대사의 인물사진을 정밀하게 그려낸 작가의 사실적인 회화, 그리고 이를 바탕으로 완성한 설치작품은 관람객으로 하여금 역사와 기억, 가족, 향수 등 지금은 사라져버린 과거의 정신적 가치에 대하여 상기시킨다. 특히 오래된 흑백사진을 대형캔버스 위에 옮겨낸 회화연작, 그리고 작가특유의 고고학적 관심을 반영한 설치프로젝트는 역사와 삶의 흔적을 탐구하는 조덕현의 작품세계를 오롯이 드러낸다. 조덕현은 Jeu de Paume(Paris), Asian Art Museum(San Francisco), Mori Museum, 삼성미술관 리움 등 세계 각지에서 전시를 개최하였으며, 그의 작품은 Hirshhorn Museum, Fukuoka City Art Museum, 국립현대미술관 등에 소장되어 있다. 그는 이화여자대학교 미술학부 교수로 재직 중이다.
