Yunhee Lee is a very popular emerging ceramic artist still in her twenties. Straight out of university, Lee has been invited to numerous high profile exhibitions in and outside Korea, and we are proud to present this fresh talent for the first time in Europe and the Americas.
Lee is currently a resident artist at Clayarch Gimhae Museum, as part of it’s initiative to support creative and experimental artists. In 2013, she was selected as one of 20 ‘Hot Rookies’ artists at the Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale, which included young talents from around the world, countries included China, US, Germany, France, and Spain.
Lee calls herself a collector: collector of common stories around her, regarding people’s insatiable desires, fears, anxieties and the cure they search and find to overcome them. She takes note of these ‘curing processes’ and bring them to life with her hands using clay as a medium. Layers of variously sized units and the splendid patterns and colors have created a beautifully delicate and refined artwork that has come to define Lee’s artistic style.
Yee Hee Lee lives and works in Seoul, S. Korea, and is represented by the DECORAZONgallery (London/ USA).
