the artist has attempted to create not only a realistic transfer of the subject onto the canvas but to investigate the fundamental question of painting – the act of painting itself.
On view at kukje gallery, seoul.

Korean artist Kwangho Lee‘s most recent work was creating the new cactus and landscape series. Lee has experimented with various techniques such as scratching, rubbing of the paintbrush, and tapping on the canvas whilst enlarging the subject to its extreme to make the cactus seem like a type of abstraction. As a result, the small cacti can appear animal-like, rouse a unique phallic aura, and be reminiscent of a monument or even a model from his previous work ‘inter-view’ series.
