Get ready to be transported to a fragmented, blood-orange land with artist Sea Hyun Lee. These oil paintings (yes, oil paintings) depict mountainous islands reminiscent of Never Never land, each one floating in a sea of milk. Dreamlike as they may be, this jagged landscape actually represents the mountains of North and South Korea, so heavily saturated in red that they are almost flushed with arteries.
Union Gallery 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.
