Gallery Now on Display: Chae Sung-Pil and Lee Gil Rae at Opera Gallery

and we’re back at Opera Gallery New York! Through December 5, Korean artists Chae Sung-Pil and Lee Gil Rae will both have their contemporary collection of paintings and sculptures on display. Sung-Pil’s The History of Blue paintings and Rae’s collection of nature-inspired sculptures entitled Pine Tree together represent a cultural exchange comprised of experimentation with rich pigments and natural elements.

Within his paintings Sung-Pil utilized various types of soil collected through his travels – combined with bold hues of blue, they are an expression of eternal hope and purity. Rae’s sculptures are comprised solely of copper, and in ode to nature they took the form of spiraling branches and curves. Peek the photos from the collections’ opening night and be sure to check out the collections in their last week:
