He built his diverse skill set during studies in South Korea and Germany. He examined traditional Korean landscape painting in Korea and partly recites its compositional elements. Contrary to the masters of traditional Korean landscape painting he does not refer to real sceneries, but rather creates an own universal living environment. He is much more interested to portrait the environment in its dynamics and its power. He integrates individual figurative elements, sporadic humans, trees and animals, as small parts of a whole, detached from any narrative relation. Daecheon Lee is interested in the invisible forces of nature. Employing powerful colors, transparencies and the interaction of dynamic, short strokes with harmonic, fluent composition of the surface he composes the energy of dramatic sceneries. He guides the gaze of the viewer in a traditional way through the landscape, its mountains and valleys, across the sea and at the same time forces him to frequently re-enter the scenery by the combination of different perspectives.
Realm of Nature shows more than the landscape, the exhibition introduces the viewer to the powerful field of forces of Daecheon Lees fictive worlds.
