Photographs Of Trees In Front Of Canvas Backdrops Turn Nature Into Art

Myoung Ho Lee, with the aid of assistants, cranes, and ropes, places blank white canvases behind trees in various natural settings throughout South Korea– in order to bring a part of the background into the foreground. According to The New York Times, the artist only digitally retouches “the trace of his own hand” because “If the mechanics of the artwork were visible, it would be easier for people to recognize the scale and the method … I want to hide them, to infuse a magical and vague aspect to my work, so that viewers may question and try to find answers themselves.”
