My art practice crosses three continents over two decades. The works consider the images and ideas that mark my journey into the spiritual and cultural dimensions of painting as a creative activity.
During a period when I have carried adventurous journeys across several different social and geographic divides, I began to search deeper for an understanding of who I am, and where I am.
My paintings started to explore the idea of self as the most fundamental element of human nature; I tried to seek my identity as I examined human nature. -Hyunmee Lee
