Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.
Painstakingly created, Lee Jeong-lok’s Mythical Landscape series turned ordinary scenes into works that intrigue and wonder. Growing up in the countryside, the artist has an intricate bond with nature and it is reflected in his works. This series is a visualization of the physical and spiritual imaginations of a certain place or object. Reality is bent and the resulting images bring viewers into an other world – one that is full of mystery and beauty.
