Korean Artist Creates Unadultered Photos of Her Studio Ensembles
Posted on December 25, 2013
Think of art showcased in photo exhibits, and what probably comes to mind are the Photoshop-enhanced colors and contrasts worthy only of a gallery crowded with discounted online stock photos.
But Korean artist Jee Young Lee’s works of art are impressively real: a constellation of real-life, tangible elements fused into an almost surreal art installation — all in her small 12 x 13.5 x 8-meter studio.
But what makes her works special is the reportedly unedited set of photos enhanced only by subtle light adjustments inside the studio. Her themes range from a mix of inspiring pastels to an ensemble of gloomy darks.
Jee Young Lee’s works are partly a byproduct of Korean fables, her cultural background and a shred of her own life’s rich experiences. They’re almost a metaphor for every highlighted fragment of her personal life.
You can take a look at her art collection up close at the OPIOM Gallery in Opio, France, from February 7, 2014, to March 7, 2014.
