korean artist jaehyo lee creates sculptures and furniture pieces from metal and chopped wood. these elements are bound together in such a way that the often-times linear building components become curved semi-geometric works of art. each piece crafted by jaehyo lee is both an engaging shape within a given space while also existing as an object with an inherently domestic purpose. the artist’s most recent exhibition, ‘transformations’, is comprised of a series of useful art objects through which the artist has continued to actualize his exploration of the materiality of his chosen media.

jaehyo lee’s ‘transformations’ is on show from october 11th until november 3rd, 2012 at albemarle gallery in london, england.
