Between Red by Sea Hyun Lee
Sea Hyun Lee is a South Korean artist born in 1967, he lives and works in London. The series of paintings Between Red is inspired by the demilitarized zone between South Korea and North Korea. No man’s land since 1953, the fauna and the flora develop on this space of 249 kilometers long and 4 kilometers wide. The different paintings show a great visual coherence, with a very precise and detailed style, various “islands” seem to float. The mountain elements appear and disappear, evoking with melancholy the trauma of the post-war period.
