Turning the World into Art: Myoung Ho Lee

4 Dec

Not many things floating around on Facebook catch my eyes quite like this series by Myoung Ho Lee.

Lee’s series illustrates what it means to separate the subject from it’s environment. By placing a canvas behind each tree, Lee brings the subject forward into the viewer’s perception, while creating distance with the subject’s environment. This process gives way to the ambiguity of the surroundings to the subject.

    Interesting idea. And the images transcend mere illusion.
