Monumental wood sculptor Lee Jae-hyo seems to have a regular slot at Albemarle Gallery. He returns to London this month in a show entitled “The Force of Will – The Force of Nature” which runs 15 October – 6 November 2010.
Lee Jae-hyo’s work shows great respect for natural materials, but also the will to dominate what nature has provided. One is immediately struck by the perfectionism of his craftsmanship and to reflect on the many long hours of hard physical labour that must have gone into the production of these immaculate yet also intricate objects.
Albemarle Gallery is at 45 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4JR.
