Soo Kyoung Lee, born in 1969 in Seoul, South Korea.
The artist’s works are not meant to be representative; her goal is to, by eliminating the subject, to make the work the subject, and to leave interpretation entirely up to the viewer. She describes her process like facing into a void until, sometimes after hours of studying the blank canvas, she begins to work. She describes the gap between thinking and seeing while painting as “very narrow,” in which “an action leads to another, colors confront themselves and harmonize in a movement” that proceeds to become an artwork.
