Neon in the Trees
Lee Jung is a rare combination of poet and visual artist. Her C-type photographs often feature large, neon poems against a serene natural environment. In the work “To Death,” the neon words read, “With my soul in your eyes to eternity as you are inside me at first sight your name I swear take my all thinking of you to death.” Her statements are often political and many of the photographs are taken on the border of North Korea. Jung was educated at the Royal College of Art in the United Kingdom and was recently featured in the “Chaotic Harmony” photography exhibition at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.
