About

Korean artist Jinju lee’s paintings are visual contemplations on the questions oft-repeated in life. Lee focuses on the residue of negative events and emotions which constantly resurface in everyday life. All rendered with Korean color on fabric, Lee's paintings of memories encapsulated and floating islands scattered with relics of passing lives are poignant and unsettling. Memory is a powerful enigma many artists seek to debunk in their artwork, but the deep intensity with which Lee explores the painful questions of memory resounds throughout these images. "Life wanders, but memories remain," quotes the artist.
