Lee Ufan, born in Korea and active in Japan and France, is a highly unusual artist. In his paintings he places grey forms very precisely on a white surface in order to create balance and imbalance, emptiness and manifest presence. In his sculptures, he associates stones that have been eroded for millennia by the power of nature with metal plates that have been cast and cut by human hands. With these simple ingredients and a surprising economy of means, he makes visual images the bearers of thought. In the chaotic world of today, they are invitations to poetry and meditation.
