“Il Lee at Art Projects International” by Jonathan Goodman



A product of both Western and Asian cultures, Il Lee’s remarkable series of ballpoint pen drawings quote both the theoretical and physical reductiveness of minimalism and the understated lyricism of classical Asian culture. The combination, in Lee’s case, is a stunning hybrid, not only of form but also of intention, in which the artist’s allegiances are made more complex by his ability to reference the thought and style of two very different approaches to art.
