BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Kwang-ho Lee is a Korean artist and university professor working in Seoul. He has been widely represented within Korean fine art circles but is still relatively unknown abroad. Considered to be at the forefront of the contemporary Korean realist movement, his work deals with the sensory experience of touch. Through his larger than life, hyper-realistic paintings he tries to make his viewers experience what it is like touch something, while merely looking at it. In his series, Cactus, the sheer size of the paintings – which measure up to nearly 10 feet – allows the cacti to take on a life of their own. The practice of painting the cacti as portraits pushes the viewer to search for a human gaze within the paintings, often resulting in a perceived reflection of oneself. In the words of Walter Benjamin, “To perceive the aura of an object, we look at means to invest it with the ability to look at us in return.”
