Seulgie’s Puff Head

In the two years since Seulgie Lee debuted her Satyr (2015), an adorable interpretation of the half-man, half-goat creatures of the same name from Greek and Roman mythology, the artist has continued to evolve and refine it. The most significant alteration to date occurred in 2016 when the new iteration titled Rory, or Satyr Rory, was introduced, replacing the sculpted bushel of hair on the original with a bald base, allowing for shocks of synthetic strands to be placed atop to create a Kewpie doll effect. Additionally, there have been modified tail variations, a paw-footed leg option, and headdresses that are adorned with ears in the likeness of animals, but all of this was covered in our previous article (read here).Seulgie's Rory & Satyr - 1st Birthday & May Editions, 2016 & 2017 Since then, Seulgie revealed a completely new sculpted hair, one that provides a slightly raised hair line to the Satyr Rory, the new element’s flowing form fitting to the piece’s head shape perfectly. Initially seen on her May (2017) edition pieces, this new aspect was employed throughout her newest solo exhibition, as were the plastic “balloons” with wire strings accessoryies similar to those from the 1st Birthday (2016) edition. But these details aren’t representative of the exhibit’s true heart. Titled Puff Head, the showcase’s name immediately summons one’s attention to the fluffy bonnets adorning the works, the material forming vague interpretations of bears and bunnies. And that’s where one’s attention should be placed, on the hardness of the hand-painted resin bodies balanced and contrasted by the softest puffs topping each one.
