Comment
彼は「版が筆代わりの絵画」とも言えるような方法で制作します。作品は全てが一点ものです。私個人も作品制作に於いて一番重要視している「刷る」という概念を抜いてしまったら、制作の意味がなくなってしまう典型的な作家の一人ですが、その危うさの中で出て来る色彩とマチエールが魅力の作家です。

Lee Min creates his works as if he “draws” with his print blocks. In printmaking, the very act of “printing” is the process that makes the work come alive. If this creative act is taken away from the artist there is no point in creating printed works. Lee Min is one of those artists whose works carry a charming colouring and matière that thrills the audience.
