Spectacular Double Exposure Oil Paintings

Korean artist Ho Ryon Lee's series entitled Overlapping Images incorporates a double exposure technique that is typically used in photography. The remarkable thing about this body of work is that the images are, in fact, oil paintings. The realistic renditions of the multitude of scantily clad women in these works employ a layering method that plays with opacity. There is a simulated sense of motion, as though we're able to view several moments in time at once.

While the paintings reflect movement, they also exude a slow-motion sensuality. In most of Lee's work, he represents a headless or faceless female form. It is a primal depiction of the male gaze and perhaps even illustrative daydreams of the adolescent male mind. There's something about his work that seems voyeuristic while simultaneously celebrating the beauty of the female body.
