Myoung Ho Lee - Tree...
Jun 29, 2017 — Aug 25, 2017
Artist's Reception: Thursday, June 29, 6:00 - 8:00pm.
Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of color photographs by Korean artist Myoung Ho Lee. For the artist's second solo exhibition in the United States, "Tree…" will include images produced between 2011 and 2017 in Korea and Mongolia.
For the "Tree..." series, Mr. Lee photographs solitary trees growing in the landscape against a constructed white canvas backdrop, which isolates the tree from its surroundings and makes ambiguous its scale. After selecting a tree for its unique formal qualities and distance from other landmarks, the artist constructs a temporary photography studio on site with the help of a large production crew and heavy cranes. Using a large-format camera, Lee photographs each tree and oversized canvas in the center of the image, allowing the natural environment to fill the rest of the frame.
