Critic

LEE, Young-Sik born in Seoul, South Korea, has been studying, living and working as a freelance artist in Berlin since 2002. Under the title “Metaphor”, LEE mainly shows large-format works with colorful, emblematic animal-human scenes that can be described as a sequence or variation of a single motif. In addition to the question of the metaphorical powers of images, the question can also be asked whether images as a whole can be a metaphor. The word „metaphor“ comes from the Greek and means „transference“. In modern art, the term stands for the symbolic use of parable pictures or as a synonym for allegory.

It is always images from different worlds that are assembled by LEE. Influenced by China’s culture as the oldest culture in Asia, he uses detailed representation in combination with play of colors in his work to perfection. He attaches the greatest importance to conveying a certain mood that casts a spell over the viewer.

Animals are deprived of their natural environment like the crocodile that emerges from the dark. His scaly armor shimmers brightly like mother-of-pearl in the light, his snout is wide open and in front of him is a dead bird. A closer look reveals a bizarre detail: on the floor there is a tote bag, a cultural asset of our time. Crocodiles live in symbiosis with birds, they are also the closest recent relatives of the dinosaurs. The picture is titled „Narcissus and Farewell“. The meaning of this title is immediately apparent and is not in need of any further explanation. What remains is horror, LEE calls it: „The aesthetics of horror“.

The large-format work “Interview with animal” shows a young woman with a recording device and a microphone, which she is holding out to a tiger who is just stepping out of a small door. The tiger was one of the most popular motifs in Korean folk painting and still has an important cultural meaning because it is associated with the Korean people. The tiger appears in numerous Korean fairy tales and legends. Sometimes it is frightening, sometimes it brings luck and symbolizes courage. The tiger in LEE’s picture is not a wild beast, he is a domesticated animal and looks just as harmless and innocent as the young woman. The woman and the tiger are in a small room with pink walls and a wooden floor and could also be a room in an old Berlin apartment. The tiger seems to be at home here. The protagonists move but remain silent and in the moment.

“When I start painting, the invisible becomes visible. Figures change, I relish the metamorphosis that comes with inspiration. Painting by LEE, Young-Sik – irritating and at the same time formally arranged – is animated by the tension between objective appearance and abstract marks generated coincidentally by the painting process. LEE breaks down the lines between human and animal behavior. The atmosphere of the images and, upon closer inspection, the metaphorical references also reveal subliminal levels of meaning. His painting reflects today’s times and the way „in which we submit to the world“. –Christine Balbach, curator, art projector, Germany
