Lee Ikjong / Lacquered Pot
|出展作家||Lee Ikjong / Kim Seongho / Oh Wangtaek|
Crosspoint Gallery presents Kim Seongho (Master of Mother-of-Pearl Inlay and Dry-Lacuqer) and Lee Ikjong (Master of Lacquer)'s first duo exhibition. When entering the exhibition room, 12 lacquered vases inlaid with plum blossom designs in different shapes are shown in the corner of the room. Each vase has a different plum blossom design, but the vases become one big picture when gathered together. In the center of the room, big and small irregularly shaped trays are placed, like plum flowers fallen into a stream, slowly flowing across the room. On the other side of the room, you can find the main artwork – a 70-centimeter dry-lacquered tray on the wall. Sketched by a painter, shaped and inlayed with various Mother-of-Pearl shells by Master Kim, and finally polished with Korean traditional lacquer by Master Lee, this tray shows the simplicity and elegance of Korean Mother-of-Pearl Inlay lacquerware.
