with works by Minho LEE
(Korean)
Lee Minho is known as a photographer in Korea but she worked as a painter when studying in Paris. Unlike her photographs, Lee’s paintings aroused a rather gloomy, heavy atmosphere, applied with achromatic colors. Lee made a turnaround from painting to photography in the late 1990s, while changing her work’s atmosphere considerably. In her painting work she was consistently absorbed in rather blunt questions concerning ideal existence. After naturally changing her primary medium to photography however, her work’s composition appears multilayered and her palette becomes diversified. As she did not take any formal photography education, her option of angles and locations is not confined by any regulation. While capturing her surroundings, escaping from any ideal consideration of painting, Lee has naturally put focus on figures and landscapes. Interesting is her intentional cutting of the upper parts of faces in her paintings and photographs. This is to get rid of a figure’s individuality and instead emphasize anonymity, but in her photography this composition allows viewers to grasp photographic subjects by their bodies or clothing — By Jung Hyun, Art Critic
