An artist “Jiyong Lee” has created remarkable glass sculptures mainly inspired by his fascination with call division. The glass sculptures represent this scientific process, when the light plays of the glass, transforming the works of art into marvelous new forms. Well, as onlookers move around Lee's incredible creations, the surface, the sculptor's Segmentation series looks both simple and complex, representing the contrary relationship between clarity and intricacy.
Moreover, the similar connection can be found within living beings, which adds a symbolic quality to these biologically-inspired glass structures. Therefore, in transforming solid glass by cutting, laminating, carving, and refining, Jiyong Lee invests an unbelievable amount of thought into his expressive work. He says; I love to work with glass that has transparency and translucency, having two qualities that serve as flawless metaphors for what is recognized and unidentified about life science. Thus, the segmented, geometrical forms of my work represent cells, embryos, biological and molecular structures and each symbolizing the building blocks of life as well as the starting point of life.
The exclusively refined translucent glass surfaces recommend the enigmatic qualities of cells and, on a larger scale, the cloudiness of their futures. The Segmentation series is delicate and quiet yet structurally complex. Here’s below you can see Lee’s marvelous work out. We’re sure; you’d love his work with great applause. Source: My Modernmet and
