New Stunningly Ethereal Works by Stella Im Hultberg

Pop artist Stella Im Hultberg, a long time favorite on My Modern Met, has produced some remarkable works over the last year. The Brooklyn-based Korean artist presented a large selection of her newest works at a recent gallery show titled Borrowed Memories. The pieces in the exhibit featured her signature style–stunning portraits of fictitious female subjects with milky skin and big eyes.

Each character in Im Hultberg’s works exudes a sense of duplicity. While surreal in their exaggerated features, there is a simultaneous presence of realism. The multifaceted artist’s paintings, illustrations, and sculptures all draw the viewer’s attention, leaving them wanting to know more and questioning the thoughts of these seemingly sorrowful beauties, their faces raw from frost or perhaps from tears. Im Hultberg further alludes to sorrow and weeping through the shape of her almost sculptural tear drop canvases. These works are both ethereal and mysterious.
