Hyein Lee is an artist from Goyang, Korea. Lee’s works are based on outdoor sketches. Her paintings do not follow the malerisch logic and reproduce nature, but uses a method for the artist to view and experience the subject properly. The location or subject in Lee’s paintings is the stimulant. However, the artist does not intend to assert an idea through her images. The act of painting itself, under the artist’s unique order and method, is the purpose of Lee’s works.
Lee held solo exhibitions including in Brain Factory (2011, Seoul), Daegu Art Museum (2013, Daegu, Korea), Doosan Gallery (2015, New York), Sophie’s Tree (2016, New York), and others. She participated in numerous group exhibitions in National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul Museum of Art (Seoul), Ilmin Art Museum (Seoul), Incheon Art Platform (Incheon, Korea), Project Space Sarubia (Seoul), and many more. She participated in multiple residencies including MMCA Residency Goyang (Goyang, Korea), SeMA Nanji Residency (Seoul), Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin), and others. The artist won the Chong Geun Dang Art Award in 2012 and SINAP(Sindo Art Prize) in 2017. Lee received her BFA and MFA in Fine Arts in Seoul National University, in 2004 and 2007 accordingly.
