Ceramic Sculptures by Haejin Lee

"Ceramicist Haejin Lee (Instagram) creates sculptures that seem to unravel before your eyes, ceramic forms that open and splay outwards to make vessels unusable and faces far more interesting. Utilizing minimal color Lee instead focuses on her shapeshifting creations, often incorporating human elements like eyes and mouths that sprout from the banded chaos."

Hand-carved Portraits by Yoo Hyun

Using an X-acto knife and tweezers, Korean artist Yoo Hyun (Instagram) hand carves intricate cut-paper portraits that feature the likes of movie stars, world leaders, and musicians. Up close, Hyun’s pieces look like abstract designs, but from afar they read as photo-realistic depictions of his subjects. He achieves this by incorporating a zig-zag pattern into his compositions, where each line is specially cut to build a three dimensional-looking form.

Sea Hyun Lee: Between Red

This blood-orange land on oil canvases by Sea Hyun Lee is actually a mountains from the border between North ans South Korea. Union Gallery, what represents the author, describe the paintings as

Deeply personal works that reference Lee’s own sense of the past and its losses. Here, Lee tarries with two familiar ideas: nostalgia and utopia. But he avoids approaching either with mere simplicity or mere skepticism. Instead, his paintings are infused with a sophisticated sense of nostalgia, and a wry idea of utopia.
