    “By the same principle, when the white space on a canvas is made to vibrate by the slight touch of a brush using a refined technique, people can perceive it as the real nature of painting.” Lee Ufan, quoted in Lee Ufan, The Art of Encounter, London, 2004, p. 10

    Composed of singular sweeps of paint using the artist’s traditional grey palette, Dialogue sees the paint built up over an extended period of time, with the brush gradually unloading and the mark lightening as he drags it across the surface of the canvas, each repetition being ritualistically controlled by Lee’s held breath. From right to left, the sweeps of paint fade from a blue grey to a pure white. Developing this series since 2006, the present lot exemplifies the artist’s composition of “a single dab in the void”, challenging the relationship between the “object” and the space it occupies on the canvas, immersing oneself in the art of encounter.

    「同理,當畫布上的白色空間被畫筆的細膩技巧輕觸而共鳴,大家可視此為繪畫的純真性質。」李禹煥,錄於李禹煥,《相遇的藝術》,倫敦,2004年,10頁

    作品《對話》有著藝術家慣用的灰色調,每個筆觸皆一掃到底,見證顏料經時間而建立,隨著筆刷逐步拖過畫面,顏色漸淡,每個重複的動作都是李禹煥提著呼吸專心致志而就,從右至左,顏料從藍灰色褪至白色。該系列從2006年開始,此次上拍作品彰顯藝術家「空白中的單一輕觸」構圖技巧,挑戰「物」與「空間」的關係,沉浸在相遇的藝術中。
