Overlapping Image by Ho Ryon Lee
A gorgeous selection of oil paintings of female figures in sensual and provocative poses with the use of overlapped “images” to create the sense of motion by the artist Ho Ryon Lee. They’re part of the new works from the series entitled “Overlapping Image”. More paintings of the series are available here.
Just like overlapped images, the term “overlap” refers to the frame of the first image occupying the same area as other images. Rather than traditional paintings, photography is much more effective when expressing overlapping frames; despite the fact that the artist’s pieces are classified as paintings, they are closer to photography. In his painting, the texture of photography has been used and reproduced –we can define such style as a photo-like picture(photorealism). In reality, the artist took several photos of the model standing in a specific pose. The photos are then composed together via Photoshop, and the finalized product is painted on canvas.
