After his prominent position in one of the rooms in this summer’s Korean Eye at the Saatchi Gallery, Lee Jaeho returns to the Albemarle for one of his regular solo slots:
Lee Jaehyo: Transformations
Albemarle Gallery, 49 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4JR
11 October – 3 November
This, the 29th solo exhibition of the sculptures of Lee Jaehyo reaffirms his reputation as a sculptor working to the highest technical standards and one with an instinctive sense for form. Lee Jaeyho’s fundamental language is the line and the dot, which reflect the nail itself. In most works rings of steel or wood are used to create sequences that form patterns on the surface of an abstract form. There is something of the logic of the Japanese digital artist Tatsuo Miyajima (b.1957) in this approach to sculpture, with the crucial difference that Lee’s work is rooted in nature.
