“Il Lee, Chun Kwang-Young and Lee Ufan: International Abstraction, Generational Trajectories” by Jonathan Goodman
Using the dark black and indigo inks of ballpoint pens, Il Lee builds up monumental form through repeated working over a particular space, with the edges of his images diffused and loosened by random curling lines. The results, which take on a performative aspect given the single-minded endurance required for their production, are both monolithic and subtle.
