Jessie (Jihyun) Lee is a South Korean, Toronto based multi-disciplinary artist. Lee, a self-declared ‘soul healing’ artist, uses painting as a tool to actualize her visual window to heal her psychological wounds from external stimuli such as social pressure and media coverage, and furthermore, hope to share her healing methods with the audience.
She utilizes painting as a medium to re-frame the outer world in a more acceptable way and blends positive and negative scenes of imagery to paint the method to her healing.
Her art consists of imagery that reflects outside world and self-reflected imagery and through this, she ultimately peruses balance between the inner and outer world.
“Over the past three years, I went through a rehab process as a result of a knee injury and had three surgeries. In recent months, I faced an unprecedented incident which resulted in a heavy concussion. Overall, I’ve had a very difficult phase in my life. But now, with the advent of this event, this phase is over.
My work was chosen for the Artrooms Fair in Seoul.
Based in London, Artrooms Fair is the first art fair offering free exhibition space to independent artists.
Now the international fair has branched out to Asia and the first city they will be hosting the exhibition in is Seoul!
Every work in the show is selected by a panel of leading industry experts, art critics and buyers across the globe. Most of the judges are Sotheby collectors, the number one art auction company in the world.
