Lee Hyung Joung solo exhibition
22 Lock Road
#01-35 Gillman Barracks
Lee Hyun Joung is a visionary artist whose work reflects her unique blend of childhood memories in South Korea. Utilizing Hanji, made from Mulberry trees, Lee’s work stands at the crossroads of Korean culture and fine art.
Her method of art-making involves letting the natural relief of the Hanji paper appear. With her brush, she creates patterns of lines that both emphasize and impede the paper’s embossed design, resulting in an ethereal, dream-like quality to her work. Her pieces are portraying heaving mounds and supple ridges that are reminiscent of the textures of mountains and other land formations.
