JeeYoung Lee and her imagination

Fist of all, apologies for being so quiet lately, November and December were crazy busy, but 2014 is the year, I will definitely write more about children’s books, illustrators and storytellers.
I wanted to share the work of this girl with you today….

JeeYoung Lee has a lot of imagination.
She transforms her tiny room into a magical space with only a few colours, paper and bits that she founds.
For weeks, sometimes months, she creates the fabric of a universe born from her mind within the confines of her 3 x 6 m studio. All this, just for a single photograph, but aren’t they wonderful?. She does so with infinite patience, in order to exclude any ulterior photographic alteration.

Graduate of Hongik University in Seoul and recipient of the Sovereign Art Prize in 2012, Lee opens her first European exhibition at Opiom Gallery in Opio, France titled Stage of Mind starting February 7, 2014.
