About the Artwork

Returning to the realm of landscape painting with India ink, Jong Mok Lee has continuously explored natural scenery, personal inner landscapes and how they exist. With light yet energetic strokes, he creates shapes reminiscent of birds or winds and abstract lines and communicates the identity of his India ink painting that he has practiced for years.

About the Artist

He graduated from Seoul National University with a bachelor's degree in Painting and a master's in Oriental Painting. Since his first exhibition in 1983, he has had tens of solo and group exhibitions. He has been working on modernizing and reinterpreting hanji (traditional Korean paper) over the years. With different experiments using media and materials, he has been promoting the expansion of contemporary India ink painting through his work.


German modernist Georg Baselitz is best recognized for his "upside-down portraits." The artwork's depiction of legs and feet, which is a part of a recent series, is typical of the artist's early work and also serves as a symbolic self-portrait. All of the titles of the works in the series are taken directly from song titles. This particular piece is titled "Evening Bells" by Anthon Gunter, a well-known folk song among Germain miners. Learning the story of how it is titled, it seems to me that the legs in the high heels rotate like a turntable. How do you feel?
