Wonsook Kim School of Art B.F.A. ’96 2007 Oil on canvas 88 x 68 inches Gift of Craig and Lynn Jacobson through Jaqueline Silverman and Associates
A ziggurat, or pyramidal structure, rests at the bottom edge of the black and white composition. The side of the ziggurat facing the viewer is white and filled with evenly spaced, round black circles across its surface, giving the impression of holes in the structure. Wisps of irregular black marks create unevenness in the white triangle. The background is black with faint, evenly spaced, dark gray circles. A small section of the left side of the ziggurat is visible creating a three-dimensional illusion. The top point of the ziggurat is a few inches down from the top of the painting.
