The Mondrian Seoul Itaewon Art Collection
Rotating art on display
Nico Tone, Shell Flower
Inspired by René Magritte’s “The Castle of the Pyrenees”, Shell Flower depicts a magical floating world made of natural elements collected from vintage matchbox designs. The artwork represents a surrealist world made up of fantastical natural and man-made objects. The work is displayed as a floating bouquet of flowers that comes to life. As with Magritte’s work, with the clear pink and blue sky arise feelings of hope.
About the Artist
Nico Tone is a collective of media artists based in Asia. Their artistic practice comes from exploration of relationships between traditional fine art and new emerging technologies. Nico Tone’s works include video-paintings, interactive and generative experiences.
Alex McLeod, The Same Place
A landscape is viewed from a birds eye, as the animation plays similarities begin to appear suggesting a loop, but something is different.
Alex McLeod is a Toronto-based visual artist who creates work about interconnection, life’s cycles, and empathy through the computer as medium. Prints, animations, and sculptures function as gateways into alternative dimensions, oscillating between the real and the imagined. McLeod holds a BFA from the Ontario College of Art and Design, and a Masters in Digital Media from the Yeates School of Graduate Studies at Ryerson University, Toronto. He has exhibited extensively at the provincial, national and international levels. His work is held in private and public collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
