My designs, illustrations, and thoughts along the way.
Anthropomorphism is the recognition of people-like characteristics in animals, plants or non-living things. This tree can be found in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. During the time of slavery in the South, slave ships were often unable to make it through the Outer Banks because of the treacherous landscapes. From the looks of this picture, it seems as if they may have lost some passengers along the way.
Artist Transforms a Single Room into a Series of Surreal Fantasy Worlds
JeeYoung Lee is a Korean artist currently living in Seoul. A recent graduate of Hongik University, Lee transforms her small studio space into a series of surreal fantasy worlds. None of the images below are photoshopped. Everything is built and created in the same small room that measures a modest 11.8′ x 13.5′ x 7.8′ (3.6m x 4.1m x 2.4m).
Each ‘set’ takes weeks, sometimes months to build. And in the midst of it all you will find the artist, carefully placed in each. The various worlds are inspired from dreams, visions and childhood memories. Others are interpretations of her environment and even childhood fables and tales.
A winner of numerous awards including the 2012 Sovereign Art Prize, Lee’s work will be featured at an upcoming solo exhibition entitled Stage of Mind, at the Opiom Gallery in Opio, France from February 14 – March 15, 2014.Artwork by JEEYOUNG LEECourtesy of Opiom Gallery
