Young Lim Lee is an artist operating out of Georgia, USA. She was born in Seoul, South Korea, and she currently is seeking a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Georgia. Her existing artwork investigates the thought that the internal feelings and the aura created by them may be captured and depicted through the visual elements.
Young explains the work by saying, “I attempt to bring out the incorporeal feelings physically by the use of expressive color, the tactile qualities of the painted surface, and mark making without much mediation, then I accentuate the feelings with the human figure through the delicate facial expressions and the subtle bodily gestures trying to reconcile realism with abstraction and premeditation with improvisation. Additionally, I use patterns or shapes that weave through the composition in an effort to enhance the atmosphere of the painting.”
