Artist Nomination Document



Kang-So Lee was born in Taegu, Korea in 1943. Lee's work conveys an unspecific, but open message that is both fundamental and comforting. His pictorial calligraphy is synthetic and somewhat mystic. The writing passages in his works suggest that communication is a real intent. Through his quiet and peaceful paintings one is encouraged to consider that contemplation of the basic sustaining elements of life may well feed within one a sense of belonging and identity a universally worthwhile pursuit.
