Korean painter Jung-Min Lee uses acrylics on canvas to express his vision of the abstract nature of the universe. Fire and ice shimmer and dance together, maintaining harmony through tension. Lee's bright colors and iridescent whites blur across the canvas, creating a sense of movement and urgency while simultaneously capturing a moment of perfect balance. "My ultimate artistic goal is to capture the universe with my own unique color," he writes. "I intend to capture the Korean spirit and color in my work using the color that the Korean people have established over nearly five thousand years." Lee uses bold brushstrokes that sweep unreservedly through his paintings, and these strokes create an intricate web full of motion and suspense.
Lee is very much influenced by his Korean heritage. He feels a strong connection to the Korean principles of harmony, and says that in the same way Pollock captured the American spirit in his work, he strives to represent the fundamental essence of the Korean spirit through his art.
