A group show in a Mayfair gallery last week featured the work of Korean artist Paul Lee alongside western artists Hanna ten Doornkaat and Rachel Pearcey. Lee’s work went particularly well with that of Hanna ten Doornkaat, studies in repetition of line and geometry which remind one of the dot-paintings of Kim Whanki.
Lee’s work too seeks to create harmony out of repetitive motifs – in his case tiny circles drawn on the canvas, often, imperceptibly, arranged in large spirals. Sometimes these circles combine to form larger geometric designs, sometimes they they create a larger landscape. And they all instill a remarkable feeling of peacefulness.
The exhibition was organised by Theatre 4 All.
