Portfolio the first editioned artwork created by Lee Kit

2020.12.25 Fri

ShugoArts is pleased to announce the completion of Portfolio, the first editioned artwork created by Lee Kit. 

This group of new artworks—which plays an important role in his solo exhibition (Screenshot) currently on view at ShugoArts—is from a photo documentary that he has been posting on Facebook for the past six years. As Kit calls it a photo-documentary or photo-album, Portfolio is a record of his daily life while showing that Kit’s artistic practice is always moving forward. In this work ten images are inkjet printed on Arches watercolor paper. As befits Kit, who aims to expand “painting” by replicating images and projecting light, this group of works is printed as if it were painted on watercolor paper and can be considered as “works on paper.”

The ten prints are packaged in a folder-like box with a text written by the artist.
