Lo Kyung-me is a young illustrator who works primarily with black ink on silk or paper. She is currently based in New York City, but is originally from Korea.
Here is a series of her works (and details of them) which include endless sequences of rooms one opened on the other and divided through screens and walls of different nature.The deeply detailed scenes are populated with various characters invented by the artist or taken from literature: monsters, lovers and masques all seem to try and chase each others through the labyrintine constructions. The encounters may take a violent turn or a romantic one, in a generally caothic superposing of scenes of different nature.
From an interview the artist gave in 2012:
My first drawing ‘A Long Divorce’ was unplanned –meaning no thumbnail drawing or mapped structure. Over a period of three months, I drew whatever came to mind that day. In a way, the piece serves as a diary from that time.
