Jongwang Lee, Abraham (2010), Canvas, 32 x 29 inches
Recent Paintings by Jongwang Lee
October 4 – November 10, 2011 | Opening Reception: October 4, 2011
Jongwang Lee paints with a precise and complex mixture of resin, oil paint and pigment. While Lee's work pays homage to thousands of years of Korean culture, his paintings are contemporary in their Pop Art sensibility and day-glow palette. Examining the proverbial return to the womb, Lee paints human forms that float in a watery substance and inhabit a world before time.
