HORSE - Flowers Blossom On A Horse

Korean artist Lee Lee Nam originally studied sculpture, and has an extensive academic background in classical art and representation. Today Lee Lee Nam is famous for creating works that fuse old and new, East and West, tradition and innovation - thus creating a visual language that transcends any single style.

HORSE - Flowers Blossom On A Horse is part of Lee Lee Nam’s distinct socio-critical body of works. A horse stands motionless in the midst of destruction while being attacked by fighter jets that bombard the animal with rockets. According to the artist, the animal symbolises the human ego and identity, with the constant violence enacted upon it representing the destructive desires of contemporary society. However, Lee Lee Nam remains optimistic: “it is important to note that flowers blossom where the bombs have exploded, symbolising the process of healing and repair. HORSE - Flowers Blossom On A Horse is a poetic visualization of the world where all forms of disaster occur, but at the same time, by the force of nature and human will, regeneration and renewal take place.”
