j-Escalating the figurative into photo-realistic representation, Lee Jung Woong astounds with his ability to capture detail and speak through silent strokes. Employing a distinctly Oriental practice of focus on foreground and space, the artist transforms his canvas of Korean paper into a linear element of art itself, effacing its role as a medium and presenting it as a balanced component of the painting as a whole. In this image, the artist captures ink, brush and paper as subjects, not composing elements, effectively contrasting traditional representation and blurring the lines of the canonical concealment of painting processes. The thick stroke that serves as a border is acknowledgment from the artist of his unconventional subject - the brush and humble tool - as the unabashed protagonist of his work.
