Lee Bae Sublime Charcoal Light Landscape Exhibition Perrotin Tokyo Weekender Art

Lee Bae – ‘The Sublime Charcoal Light’

Art

Lee Bae, based in Paris and Seoul, has been exploring charcoal for over 30 years, demonstrating the diversity of monochrome and emerging as one of Korea’s most prominent post-Dansaekhwa artists. Charcoal is ever the nostalgic medium for him; a wish-making ritual in his hometown of Cheongdo involved burning a straw house under a full moon. Despite the predominance of sooty black on his canvases and in his films, Bae uses negative space and the materiality of charcoal to add dimension – and a sense of otherworldliness – to his work. He likens emptiness to moonlight – his works often juxtapose charcoal and this “moonlight.”

Heralding a return to normal life in the city, Perrotin Tokyo presents a solo exhibition of Bae’s work. Make an appointment here.
