: Jae-heon LEE

We are shown horrifying photos, but we know nothing about the individuals pictured. Jae-heon’s paintings are meant to expose the feelings of the pictured individuals, even if they are sad or frightening. As Lee move forward with his artwork, many inspirations feed into his periphery- including the philosophies of mind and body expressed by Gilles Deleuze – but they all tie to this one overlaying concept of duality which reveals itself in all experiences. Born in Ulgin, South Korea, Jae-heon Lee now lives and works in Seoul. He received his BFA and MFA in painting from Seoul National University. He had one-person and group exhibitions at Savina Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, in 2009; Busan Museum of Art, Busan, in 2011; Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul, in 2011; Jeonbuk Museum of Art, Jeonbuk, in 2011; Gwangju Museum of Art, Gwangju, in 2012; Arko Art Center, Seoul, in 2012; and Shin Gallery, New York, in 2013.
