You can look, but don’t “TOUCH”

26May10

Happy hump day!

Kwangho Lee’s exhibition “touch” wrapped up last week at the Kukje Gallery in Seoul. His exhibition consisted of hyper-realistic depictions of cacti and landscapes which are absolutely stunning. One might be thinking “okay Audrey Flack, who’s next?”, but Lee used various alternative ways to actually make his paintings come to life such as scratching, rubbing the paintbrush, and tapping on the canvas to achieve his photo-realistic effect.

The softness and fluidity of the compositions as a whole are brought to new light when you get up close to the painting, which reveals countless tiny, precise brushstrokes, and more detail than you can imagine. Lee shows us that not only do the paintings themselves create amazing images, but the minute details and dedication put into each inch of these paintings is amazing in itself.
