Tree…

Korean artist Myoung Ho Lee’s color photographs from his second solo exhibition in the US – Tree…, at Yossi Milo Gallery, NY. The images were produced between 2011 and 2017 in Korea and Mongolia. 
The press release describes the work as “Situated somewhere between botanical field studies, studio portraiture and billboard advertising, Myoung Ho Lee’s tree studies pay homage to the everyday object and transform nature’s craft into a work of art worthy of careful study, as one would view a framed work of art. The tree “portraits” play with ideas of scale and perception, creating an image within an image that both highlights and obscures the relationship between object and photograph.”
Each tree has a distinct style and design that when photographed against the white oversized canvas without other trees around becomes evening more striking.
