Yejin LeeFirst-Year MFA Candidate
As a Korean-American living in Western society, Yejlin Lee’s roots are drawn from Buddhism. Her work fuses Eastern traditional philosophy with Western contemporary scientific consciousness, exploring Oneness between all aspects of nature.
As an artist with a background in painting and drawing, Lee’s work is related to the twentieth-century Korean monochrome movement Dansaekhwa which imbues Western minimalist ideas with Buddhist philosophy. In her recent work, seeking a balance between the subjective and objective, she explores digital media and performance connecting metaphysical ideas with physical phenomena. Throughout her repetitive discipline as a meditative practice, she comprehends the Oneness between changing forces.
