In the Art Critic
The title of this exhibit of Mr. Ikryeol Lee, Systems of Capitalism, is heavy. As the title sounds that of a book on sociality, choosing it as the title of an exhibit of a painter looks even reckless. Notwithstanding, the title is proper in explaining the paintings of Mr. Lee, who has ceaselessly been delving into the relationships between the modern civilisation and human being. This heavy and serious title covers the subjects of his entire exhibits in the past and present. The subjects related to civilisations of machines (Machine Begins (1987), Phantom of Machine (1989) and Machine Smoke (1990)), cityscapes (Cityscapes New York (2013) and Cityscapes Seoul (2013)) and human being and capitalism (Memories of Systems (2014) and Personality vs. Sociality (2015) and Blue Planet (2015)) let the paintings of Mr. Lee be interconnected in gigantic systems of capitalism.

Mr. Lee in fact paints cars on canvases. He searches for the potentials of dynamic scenes in various ways, specifically painting the images of races and drivers of Formula 1 and rally machines by expressionistic fast strokes of his brushes on canvases building textures on them. The shapes of sports cars and racers disappear being mixed with backgrounds by strokes of brushes and mix of colours and reappear like ghosts. This is not all. He also directs the scenes where the barriers between objects and background and between space and time are demolished, for example, by frequently overlapping car headlamps and landscapes around the road and racers wearing helmets and dusty-flying landscapes.
