Lee Heum: Neverland; Candyland, Do Not Eat
1. A solo exhibition of Korean artist Lee Heum featuring 37 hyperrealistic oil paintings
2. Lee uses candy as a metaphor to depict the abundance and symbolism of modern society
May 12 - Jun 10, 2023
Lee Heum creates hyper-realistic images with a candy theme. In Lee's work, candy takes on vibrant hues, alluring us with its tantalizing sweetness that appears as if it could cascade at any given moment. Occasionally, the candy is presented in its unadulterated form, encased within a plastic vinyl wrapper. Through this exhibition, we hope to explore the fascinating intersection between our diverse narratives within modern society and the enchanting essence of this candy, uncovering the deeper implications it holds.
