About the artist
Eun Lee

Eun Lee’s works present an exploration of the continuities of nature and a belief in the enduring vitality of beauty and the perpetuation of methods of timekeeping through oral and visual traditions.

In her paintings, the governing structures and belief systems of our lives are caught up simultaneously as a visualization of the past and as a perception of the present from an imagined future: a physical approximation of imaginary utopia.

The delicately balanced paintings depict scenes that feel reminiscent of Eunyoung Lee’s childhood memory. They are distant yet quietly composed, serene and tranquil. The artist wants her paintings to be a pathway to an ambiguous place, an undefinable place, a place in between. Fleeting and eternal stand her paintings as a primary form of visceral and visual communication.
