Classically inspired lightboxes by Myung Keun Koh

Myung Keun Koh gives us a unique new take on classical artwork by layering transparent prints on top of 3-dimensional lightboxes. The artist laminates each photographic print, creating a multiple exposure effect laid on top of forms resembling modern houses or building complexes. Each lightbox is illuminated from inside and radiates a warm glow on the outer artworks. The photographs themselves either feature classical figures or architectural motifs. Contours are blurred and softened by the layering effect. Muted color palettes also add a touch of ethereal delicacy.14311373590_0dc3ed9eaf_bKoh graduated from Pratt Institute in New York with a Masters in Fine Arts degree in 1991.
