“Between Red-46” (2008): Sea Hyun Lee is a South Korean artist (b. 1967) whose captivating series Between Red depicts the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea. Lee describes being in this area during his military service: “I would wear night vision goggles, which coated everything in red. The forests and trees felt so fantastic and beautiful. It was unrealistic scenery filled with horror and fear, and with no possibility of entering.” Despite the monochrome effect of the red washes on white canvas, these images are incredibly detailed and evocative of a nostalgic Never Never Land on the sea.
