The second “Portfolio” series

2023.11.16 Thu

The second "Portfolio," an editioned work by Lee Kit, is now complete.

The 12 images printed on watercolor paper are selected from images Kit has taken on a daily basis over the past decade. In addition, the texts from his journal are included as well as the images. Compared to the previous edition, this work focuses more on color and texture, and the imagery is more abstract. These works, which are visual entities apart from any specific meaning or context, will be presented for the first time in his solo exhibition A blank stare like a gasp. The installation consists of works including, but not limited to, spray paint on metal plates, shiny walls created by transparent tape, a surface layer of destroyed metal, and projections used as light.
