              Lee Ufan "From Winds, 1985" Print

              Est: $800 - $1,600

              Lee Ufan (born 1936) is a South Korean artist and philosopher known for his minimalist and conceptual artwork, as well as his contributions to the Mono-ha movement in Japan during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Born in Korea during the Japanese occupation, Lee moved to Japan in 1956 to study philosophy at Nihon University in Tokyo.Lee Ufan's artistic practice is deeply rooted in Eastern philosophy, particularly the concept of "emptiness" (mu in Japanese, or wu in Chinese), which emphasizes the interconnectedness of all things and the importance of the void or space in art and life. He explores these ideas through a range of media, including painting, sculpture, installation, and writing.In his early works, Lee Ufan often used natural materials such as stone, wood, and iron to create simple yet powerful sculptures and installations that emphasized the relationship between objects and their surrounding space. He became associated with the Mono-ha (School of Things) movement, which rejected traditional Western notions of representation and focused instead on the inherent properties of materials and the relationships between objects, space, and time.In the 1970s, Lee Ufan began to explore painting as well, creating minimalist compositions characterized by sparse brushwork, neutral colors, and empty space. His paintings often feature a single or a few brushstrokes applied to a large canvas, inviting contemplation and reflection on the nature of existence and perception.Lee Ufan's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, and he is considered one of the most influential contemporary artists in Asia. His philosophical approach to art has inspired generations of artists and continues to resonate with audiences globally. Measures 38.0 x 51.8.
