Art alone cannot change the world, but it can change how people view the world. It is in this context that I think that my work can promote healing across the divide created by walls and ideologies. My goal as an artist is that my work communicates with the beautiful and sincere mind of every human being beyond spoken languages. Together, humanity will gather and crawl through the wall between you and me, country and country. My main symbols, windows and letters represent reconciliation, and universal language, and humanity. Painting is a starting point with infinite possibilities that can extend to the external world; hence, I would say painting is an infinite window.

Themes about humanity seem to be romantic, timeless, age-old relics. Post-modern art, arousing and instant, connects one with these themes. The zeitgeist yearns for a Renaissance. My work is a Re-Renaissance that is needed especially for post-modern people who crave humanity.


Currently based in Berkeley, CA, Lee was born in Korea. Lee has developed her cross-media, genre-crossing approaches with various visual forms of language. She received her B.A. in English Literature. Turning to the more visual forms of language, Lee then studied painting and architecture. Her accomplishments include multiple exhibitions in New York, Michigan, California, and Korea. Lectures in Asian art history and studio classes in CA, NY, TX round out her activities.


Lee has developed a radical artistic language based on literature and Eastern Philosophy. Healing, reconciliation, and universal humanity are central to her artistic identity. The personal emotion and experiences aroused by her abstract style are part of a broader social context and beyond the border.Through synthesizing different disciplines, she coveys the idea of the coexistence of different cultures and shows how art can reconcile the split of people and various life values.
