Lee Ufan, who divides his time between Kamakura, Japan and Paris, France, is a painter, sculptor, writer and philosopher. Ufan came to prominence in the late 1960’s as one of the major theoretical and practical proponents of the avant-garde Mono-ha (Object School) group.
The simplicity and strength of his work, his use of natural materials and composition are beautiful. I love that ROLU posted these images in black and white, i think that it adds to the installations minimalist arrangement.
“Lee Ufan’s sculptural work explores emptiness and the void. Consisting of untreated materials like stone and iron, the sculptural compositions are silent yet suggestive. They manipulate the space that they inhabit and so condition the viewer’s perception” – ROLU
