Seoul and Busan-based artist Lee Sangsoo twists and coils thick strips of metal into marvelous and unique animal sculptures. The creatures, shaped with minimal lines and vivid and bright colors, are inspired by Picasso’s small, abstract animal drawings.
Lines, planes, and colors are important elements that work in my work. The lines drawn in the two-dimensional sketchbook determine the large flow and form of the work, and it becomes three-dimensional in the three-dimensional space. The square lines are shown in various shapes and colors according to the flow and twist, and you can feel the dynamism in the still work. Also, depending on the flow, the thickness of the lines may be rhythmically thickened or thinned.Lee Sangsoo
