1315 views

South Korean artist Jiyong Lee constructs luminous sculptural pieces through the use of segmented glass components. Fused together by coldworking techniques, Lee is renowned for his glass programmes at Southern Illinois University since 2005. His work has been inspired by his strong interest in the biological process of cell division. The sculptures vary in form and design from geometrically shaped objects to forms of organic life. Lee had a recent solo exhibition at Clara Scremini Gallery, Paris. You can see a huge collection of his work on Artsy.
