Caux Collective’s Throwback Thursdays: Episode #3
December 2012 - Artist Analysis: Lee Jung

If I had to pick one minimalist style of art that I feel had been kind of overdone in the last few decades, the use of neon lights would definitely one of them. It’s not that I don’t like it, I just think you can have too much of a good thing. That being said, the absolutely stunning work of 40 year old, Korean Artist, Lee Jung, is an exception to the rule, if ever there was one, and has certainly won me over with the pieces I’ve chosen to share, here.

During her time attending the Royal College of Art in London - a prestigious University just a few hours from my own home town - Jung was awarded an M.A. in Photography, but her academic successes didn’t end there. Jung also boasts a B.A. with honors in Photography from the Kent Institute of Art & Design, also in the UK, and a B.A. with honors in Mass Communication & Journalism from Kyung Hee University in her home town Seoul, South Korea.

These beautiful pieces really set themselves apart from others of a similar style, with their personal themes and subtle, somber tones, as well as their varying locations, which adds a further dimension to each piece’s method of creation and intended meanings.

If you’d like to see more of Jung’s work, visit her profile on the website of Korean Gallery, One and J, as linked above, or head over to her profile on Artnet, where you can find more of her work.

Whilst these images, with their stunning orange skies and grass in bemusing shades of pink and blue, may seem like something from a far-away world, where everything is opposite (Australia, perhaps) they are quite simply explained. These beautiful images all come directly from the ingenious infrared photography of French Artist, David Keochkerian.
