In a stunning series by Lee Joeng Lok, two basic elements students might learn about in elementary school are combined to create enticing art pieces. Decoding Scape takes muted but colorful landscapes and inserts glowing letters from the Korean alphabet. The lettering stretches across the landscapes adding a magical light source.

The characters snake into the waters, go in straight lines across yellowed plains, wind around mounds of earth, scatter across grassy fields and add a truly ethereal element. The landscapes are heavy in purples, blues, greens and other cool color combinations. The artistry of Lee Jeong Lok is clearly apparent in this series. Each image looks like it could easily be the background to a magical story or fairytale setting.
