SANGBIN IM


임상빈(b.1976)은 서울대학교에서 서양화 학사, 예일대학교(Yale University) 대학원에서 회화와 판화 석사, 콜럼비아대학교(Columbia University) Teachers College에서 미술과 미술교육 전공으로 박사를 받았다. 작가는 현대적인 건축물과 풍경이미지를 사진으로 수차례 포착한 후, 디지털 프로그램을 이용하여 이를 한 장의 이미지로 재조합함으로써 익숙하던 도시모습을 생경한 이미지로 탈바꿈시킨다. 아날로그와 디지털 기술을 접목시키는 그의 작업은 서로 다른 시간과 공간, 시점을 하나의 시공간에서 포착한 듯 총체적으로 인식된 풍경으로 재맥락화하여 기묘한 분위기를 풍기며 찰나적인 감관의 현상계를 의문시하고 무위와 인위를 화해시키며 실제계의 진실성에 새롭게 다가선다. 그는 국립현대미술관, 서울시립미술관, 경기도미술관, 성곡미술관, 서울대학교미술관, Osaka Museum of Modern Art, Museo Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat, Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art 등에서 전시를 개최하였으며, 미디어시티 비엔날레를 비롯하여 Dean Project(New York) 등 다수의 프로젝트를 통하여 활발하게 활동하고 있다. 현재 성신여자대학교 미술대학 서양화과 교수로 재직 중이다.
