Lee Kyou-Hong is one of the leading glass artists in Korea who creates works that explore the materiality and phenomenological metamorphosis of glass to examine the concept of ‘정중동’ ‘靜中動’ (movements in stillness).

Lee’s experimentation with glass as a medium began during his time as a Masters student at Edinburgh College of Art in the UK. His early works mostly dealt with the idea of life and time – his own experiences in time and the stories held within different things, people and spaces. Lee then went on to hone his craft as an architectural glass specialist for over ten years, creating decorative interior installations and objects. From here Lee progressed his practice into a more expressive realm utilising his fine art practice as a means to pursue a self-reflective reconnaissance.

Lee Kyou-Hong (b.1972) completed his B.F.A at Kookmin University in Seoul, Korea and earned his Master’s degree from Edinburgh College of Art in UK. Awards received include a short-listed of Coburg Glass Prize in Germany and CERAMIX Glass Art Awards Special Jury award in Korea. He also created large-scale, site-specific commissions including those at Haeinsa Temple, Jinbu Railway Station, St. Clara Abbey, Korea University Hospital, Shinsa-dong Catholic Church in Korea. His work is exhibited and collected internationally including the permanent collections of the Kunstsammlungen der Veste Museum in Coburg, and Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung Museum in Munich, Germany.
