Miyeon Lee’s work looks into the psychological and bodily relationships to architecture and space. The visual outcomes are based on an activated observation of occurrences and exchanges between state-of-mind and structure. The process scrutinizes, stretches and slows down the subjects considered, giving an extensive and yet soft touch towards form and mind. She uses painting, photography, writing and other visual mediums to explore/ to teach herself about the notion of ‘looking’ in physical and philosophical terms.
Lee was born in Jeonju, South Korea in 1980 and moved to New York City in 1997. She received her Masters in Fine Arts from School of Visual Arts in New York City in 2011. Her works were exhibited in various exhibition venues, including Gavlak Gallery, Palm Beach / Gallery SoBab, S.Korea / Number 35 Gallery, New York / Nudashank Gallery, Baltimore / The Hole, New York / Family Business, New York / Sue Scott Gallery, New York / LeeC Gallery, S.Korea / Queens Museum of Art, Queens, NY / Lennon, Weinberg Gallery, New York / Fredericks Freiser Gallery, New York.
