Jaehyo Lee’s Wood Slicing in Union Square

The pedestrian island across from the chaos of Union Square is home to a somewhat serene sculpture for the next few months. Jaehyo Lee’s smoothed woodcut pieces burst upward, like a giant wooden champagne flute. (maybe that’s just wishful thinking). Called LOTUS, the sculpture exposes the materials used- revealing natural wood grain, bark, and the obvious cuts and smoothing from the tools that Lee used. The piece feels a little like nature in the weird desolate island in front of Fuerza Bruta and Starbucks.

It’s up until October.
