Jin Han Lee
Jin Han Lee (b. 1982, Seoul, South Korea) lives and works in Seoul. Lee captures the sensory complexities and fleeting moments of quotidian existence by translating everyday details into layers of psychedelic colour and wild movement. The artist’s oil paintings exist in a space beyond language and instead evoke the sensory, drawing upon the juxtaposition between her South Korean heritage and experience of living in the UK. The works’ large scale and illusory nature bestow the viewer with a space for contemplation and introspection.
Lee holds a PhD in Fine Art from Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, and a MFA from Goldsmiths College, and her work is in the collections of Hyundai Capital, Seoul and Sarabande Foundation, London. Recent solo exhibitions include: Hi, Bye, Space ISU, Seoul (2023), Martha’s Rumour, Nook Gallery, Seoul (2021), Secret, or, Rumour, Gongan Seoul, Seoul (2021) and Extended Realities, Beaconsfield, London (2021). Selected group exhibitions include: Alone Time, Union Pacific, London (2023), Magnetic Fields, BB&M, Seoul (2022) and Exhibition/Publication, Wess, Seoul (2020).
