Bae Joonsung: The Costume of the Painter – at Albemarle Gallery

Bae Joonsung returns to the Albemarle Gallery for a solo show:

BAE JOONSUNG: The Costume of the Painter

6 March – 2 April 2014
Albemarle Gallery, 49 Albemarle Street, London W1S 4JR,
Mon – Fri 10-6 | Sat 10-4


Bae Joonsung (born 1967 Kwangju, Korea) continues his highly acclaimed series ‘The Costume of the Painter’ in his first solo exhibition in the UK to be held throughout March 2014. Selected works can be previewed at ART14 in London 28 February – 2 March.

In his appropriation of old master paintings or scenes in a Museum setting, Bae Joonsung explores the interplay between his two chosen media – oil painting and photographic lenticular imagery. Since 2006, Bae’s introduction of lenticular lens within his paintings has made for a spectacular and effortless viewing experience. The unexpected reveal of Asian female nudes and the voyeuristic juxtaposition of viewer and viewed are themes exquisitely portrayed and encourage us to find a new way of looking at art.
