Korean artist Lee Jae-Hyo has this remarkable ability to turn objects as simple and natural as pieces of wood into giant sculptural spheres that adorn galleries around the globe. Displaying ultimate respect for the material at hand, as well as total control, Jae-Hyo labors for hours over these immense creations that are unlike anything we've seen before.
Lee Jae-Hyo’s work is on display in temporary and permanent collections throughout the planet – in cities as far afield as London and Washington DC – and it’s easy to see why. Using nothing more complicated than wood, along with other simple instruments such as stainless steel nails, he creates larger-than-life sculptures that are dazzling in their scope.
In addition to these wooden spheres, Jae-Hyo makes furniture with a similar material palette, displaying a restraint and patience that few artists today possess. Please visit Jae-Hyo’s website to get a better sense of his extraordinary range.
