Appreciate: Kyu-Hak Lee

Appropriation is not a new concept to the art world. Recycling and borrowing elements of artworks in different, modern ways is something that has been done for several years and has  no signs of stops. Sometimes, the end result can be lackluster, but in the right hands, it can become a revered piece of work. Segway to Korean artist Kyu-Hak Lee.  From a distance, her recreations of famous works of art appear to be paintings, but upon close inspection, the viewer can see that they are in fact mosaics. Her medium is small wooden wedges that are wrapped in newspaper. The placement of the wooden panels are meant to emulate the brushstrokes that artists like Vincent van Vogh are known for. Kyu-Hak Lee also has original compositions that can be found here.
