Partnership with

Kyunglim Lee

K&P Gallery will be having a new solo exhibition from December 7 to December 13.

Kyunglim Lee paints with acrylic on cardboard, a technique that models Korean patchwork compositions called Jo-gak-bo. Having majored in oriental painting, the artist finds cardboard fascinating because it is both soft and hard, similar to pulp, and also carries color effectively, all characteristics of Korean traditional paper, Hanji. The artist paints bay side communities and urban scenes of Seoul and other cities, teeming with diverse populations. She makes these scenes from individualized shapes and forms, built up in patchwork style. Lee's narratives depict everyday life, a familiar town from her memory or an ideal community born in her imagination.

The following extract is based on her personal notes :

Corrugated cardboard is an inevitable by-product of modern mass production and transportation systems. The cardboard, with winding symmetrical curves on its surface, stands for its necessary usage in today's commercial society as a reliable packaging medium. In my work, cardboard that has tacitly and murmurlessly finished its role as containers, protectors, and transporters of mass produced goods symbolizes a regeneration and a revival.
