Galerie Karsten Greve is delighted to present for the first time ceramic works by the Korean artist Young-Jae Lee in St. Moritz. On display are Vessels – vases, bowls, mugs, in a whole new variety of glazes, shapes and forms created since this spring.
In an effort to express a new vital energy after months of a state of emergency, Young-Jae Lee's vessels are characterized by their intense coloration. In addition to the artist's signature delicate pastel shades, in velvety green, gray, rose, and white, new hues, similar to a springtime renaissance, emerge in purple, bright green, yellow, and lilac. Beyond the glazes, the artist adds a pictorial quality to the surfaces through dabs of color and spots, as well as fluid brushstrokes. The peculiarity of her ceramics also asserts itself through her unique repertoire of forms, in whose imperfection a radiant power can be found.
