"The four swirling, undulating abstractions that Lee Bul has forged from acrylic paint and mother of pearl alone make this exhibition an essential visit. But more pleasures abound in this sharp display of five artists from BB&M’s multigenerational roster. Jin Han Lee has blazing paintings that suggest a hallucinogen-altered natural world, Bae Young-whan’s taut (aesthetically and conceptually) silver canvases riff on David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” and Jeongsu Woo’s sunny paintings, with syncopated patterns, are palate cleansers—like sweet but nuanced sorbet—in this multi-course feast. That makes Kim Heechon’s heady VR work the show’s dessert, or after-dinner drinks, as the mood turns dark."
