Since graduating in 1992 with a BFA from the Hong-Ik University Jaehyo Lee
(1965, Hapchen, Korea) has gained acclaim both in his native Korea and internationally for his distinct yet intimately crafted oeuvre. Combining distinct traces of Land Art, Arte Povera and Minimalism Lee´s works cast a questioning eye over the roots of form, its function and its role within the natural world.
Amongst many other distinctions Jaehyo was in 1998 Grand Prize Winner at the Osaka Triennial and in 2002 recipient of the prestigious Irish Sculpture in Woodland commission. His works are held in public and private collections across Europe, Asia and North America.
Austin, Connor and Trevor Bartz, three brothers living in New Brighton, Minnesota, love to create snow sculptures in their front yard every winter. They created a detailed 12-foot-tall sea turtle! The boys begin their work by piling up snow into a crude pile, which they then carefully sculpt into their desired form over the course of several weeks. This year’s sea turtle sculpture took them 300 hours! They’ve been assembling epic snow sculptures for the past 4 years
