2009. 6.3 MUSEUMS & GALLERIES

KOOALLDAM GALLERY

To Friday: “Lee Chang-ku Solo Exhibition.” Titled “When Azaleas Bloom,” Lee Chang-ku’s solo exhibition, on display in Incheon’s Kooalldam Gallery, offers a closer look into the themes of nature and its beauty.

The exhibition will take you away from the busy city streets to recall long-forgotten childhood memories. The azaleas in Lee’s paintings are used to stimulate a sense of nostalgia.

Also, in a departure from his previous works, Lee has experimented with the use of more color. The effect is a natural portrayal of the changing of the seasons, which reflects the artist’s belief that, “everything has nature inside of it.”

The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
