DONG-LAK

LIM

 

 

Korean sculptor Lim Dong-Lak, who divides his time between Busan and Paris, creates large-scale stainless steel forms that occupy time as well as space and affect the light in their environs. Viewing Lim Dong-Lak’s abstract sculptures, one is immediately struck by two things: the purity and precision of the highly inventive geometric forms, and the smoothness of the polished surfaces. His minimal form reveals a prime aspect of ideal beauty. Certainly there is in much of Lim’s recent work a kind of hyper-modern utopian impulse.
