    About the artist

    South Korean artist Lee Changwon (born 1972) studied at the Kunstakademie Münster after graduating from Seoul National University's College of Fine Art, and was based in Germany for over ten years.

    Lee makes artworks incorporating visual tricks that question the nature of the act of seeing. The works in his well-known human silhouette series appear from a distance as though they were paintings on canvas. In reality, however, the images consist only of shadows cast by objects such as tea leaves and safflower petals that he arranges on white, venetian blind-like shelves affixed to walls.
