Il Lee’s work on canvas and paper make a case for the ballpoint pen as it’s own expressive medium. These dense abstract works are the drawing and only the drawing. Pen doesn’t appear to be pen any longer but rather some fine-lined brush looping in and back on itself. I have been following Il Lee’s work for a few years and am incredibly pleased to see him included here. Lee makes the case for the whole show.
