Horyon Lee has extrapolated the photographic technique of the double exposure (which consists in the creation of a single image through the superposition of two shots) and has applied it to painting.

The women are the absolute protagonists of his works. The artist fixes on the canvas the gracefulness with which, through natural and delicate gestures, emanate all their sensuality. The paintings show at the same time the final pose of the models and the moments immediately preceding – or following – and are extraordinarily dynamic. To get this result Lee uses a camera: he creates the shots in double exposure and then uses them as “drafts” for his paintings.

“Women in my paintings are objects of desire, exhibitionists who shamelessly display their femininity. The superimposed images create the illusion that they move in front of the observer “.

Lee is originally from Seoul, South Korea, where he studied painting. In 2014 he moved to London to undertake photography studies. From that moment on, we do not know much more about him, the  site is being updated  and the last of the many exhibitions that saw him protagonist dates back to July of the same year.
