Hak Sul Lee starts as a figure sculptor. Studying human body, he finds that forms have their intrinsic value and meaning regardless of their reference in the body. These non- representational forms are simplified and repeatedly appeared as dominant elements in his work. The relationship of the forms to its compositional context with or without representational elements determines the characteristics of the whole piece. Then the whole piece takes a persona, and the viewers' encounter with it completes the narrative and defines the kind of sensations generated. Recent years he has been producing kinetic sculptures and interactive installations.
