Yi Hwan-Kwon skews physical reality by disturbing the perception and perspective through distorted forms that remind us of images re-created for us by the media. Yi's sculptural figures embody much sensitivity and vision towards creating new experiences between form and environment. Breaking standard spatial rules, the artist's works force viewers to notice the subtle three-dimensionality of the figure only by circling the work. Yi first photographs his subjects then crushes the image through computer graphic applications and the flat image is then restored to sculptural form. The end-product is one that wavers between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional form, the realistic and fictional. His previous works were typically sculpted in perpendicular extension to elicit a sense of alienation and isolation, where his new endeavors of outstretched and flattened shapes, sturdily grounded by gravity, induce amiability and warmth. Children of My Next Door (Lot 1528), unusually horizontal work, is instantly compelling piece. Strong, crisp colours, elongated proportions and the children's upturned faces in the work catch us unaware and encourage us to re-examine the characters in their every-day poses. Such amity and intimacy in the subjects are further configuring the convex exaggeration of their facial features. The sculptures provoke a visual experience in space and time, where our eyes seem to navigate familiar objects and people only for the first time, and our predicated perception must freshly adjust. Yi's coveted work hold an innate consideration of the existing environment, and at the same time, emphasize the discovery of new interactive relationship between human and land, natural and artificial, illusion and reality.
