The Korean sculptor Lee Jae-Hyo specializes in creating works from sanded and charred wood, giving the materials a second life. Working from new and recycled wood, Lee likes to show the “energy of the natural material” by leaving cracks apparent in the wood, along with the pattern of the grain. His next solo
show at Kwai Fung Art Gallery in Hong Kong will open on July 31 and present some
of his piled up wood pieces, along with installation of bolts and nails on wood. I always find the sculptor’s works very tactile, bringing out the beauty of the natural materials..
