A detached, yet highly personal effect transmits through Korean Artist Ho Ryon Lee’s photorealistic paintings.
Indeed, he paints on canvas but the previous process includes the artist taking several photos of the model in a specific pose and composing them together via Photoshop. The highly illusionistic images refer not to nature but to the reproduced image, a dizzying striptease.
The suggestive and dynamic of his overlapping images, skirt flirts in this case with a highly erotic component, make them visually delightful. The viewer becomes a voyeur, the lift of a skirt blurring into secondary movement, the subject a reminder of the fleeting nature of material things.
