Gender, culture, isolation, prejudice, and stereotypes are explored in the work of Korean photographer Chan-Hyo Bae (born 1975, Busan, South Korea), presented in his solo show at the gallery Purdy Hicks. In this new series, Jumping Into, Chan-Hyo Bae places himself at the centre of paintings from the collection of the National Gallery in London by celebrated western painters, Titian, Rubens and de Beer. His historical impersonations enter the realm of the surreal, as the artist sets himself into a newly crafted animal skin patchwork painting. The paint seems to be cracking, disappearing in parts, as the artist pastes in the layers of his new composition.
