Lee Hun Chung Biography

Hun Chung Lee, dubbed the "nomadic artist," has been showcasing various forms of exhibitions since his debut, including ceramic exhibits, installation exhibits and furniture sculpture exhibits. Lee regards ceramic as a canvas made of clay, a 3-dimensional flat surface. While using materials from both the East and the West, the basic color of his work shines of vacancy, poverty, and tranquility. Lee wishes for viewers to look beyond the physical form of the objet and choose to rather peer into the time it originated and the movement of space that will change over time, and foretell the feeling of absence that the we will feel when it is removed.
