Sea Hyun Lee: Red Sansu

Gallery Bundo is pleased to have Red Sansu, a solo exhibition of the artist, Sea Hyun Lee. He is well-known for his landscape paintings in red ('Red Sansu'), which is finished with oil painting on a canvas-covered with a linen cloth. His landscape work conveys the artist’s message to viewers as a reality and idea entangles. The artist was born in Geoje Island and traveled back and forth between the island and Tongyeong. The circular images of the sea and the porch he had always seen in his youth are reflected into the composition of his red paintings. Ever since he decided to become a painter, he moved to Busan and Seoul consecutively and received art education at Hongik University, Seoul. His college years in 1980s were full of social upheavals, and the metaphors of his social criticism in paintings were shaped during this time period.

The visual experience from the front line of the Korean Army became the primary source of his landscape painting in red. The images of the mountains and fields in a nighttime infrared vision became a new lens to see the world in a new perspective. After his discharge, he went abroad to study art at Chelsea College of Arts in London, and it was a precious period for him to develop his painting method to recollect his memories from the past. After his return to Korea in 2009, the artist became an eyewitness of various socio-political events that took place across the Korean society, and he has started to include symbols of social accusation in his paintings. This exhibition includes his 20 new paintings that reflect his current concerns in the Korean society.
