South Korean Contemporary Art15 Jan - 27 Feb 2021Pontone Gallery is delighted to present this group exhibition of six acclaimed South Korean artists at the gallery’s downtown Augusta, GA location. With artworks ranging from ostensibly traditional oil and ink paintings to light box sculptures, solar LCD units and digital work on television screens, this is an exhibition that celebrates and explores the conjunction of time-honored Eastern artistic ideals with contemporary methods of execution and representation.
Lee JungwoongBrush and Blue Abstraction 12 Dec 2019 - 19 Jan 2020Lee Jungwoong is a Korean artist of great experience, in demand worldwide and represented in many public and private collections. A master of technique, he brings a blend of cultural sensibilities to his work, in the first case, specifically referencing the western iteration of hyper-realism, and in the second, the ancient eastern art of the brush. His painting seems to mirror a contemporary Korean preoccupation with a kind of cultural accommodation, where a modern society is a synthesis of the past and the present and where cultural differences are reconciled. We might see his paintings as hybrids, examples of such a process.
