About this Art
This piece of original artwork is ready to hang.
"I love to be surprised or amazed in positive ways in my daily life. This piece is about the moment of re-encountering the part of ourselves that "we haven't been forgotten," such as childhood memories. I was surprised about myself that l live on a very linear timeline but can still connect with my childhood beyond the linear timeline. I can even feel the emotions of certain moments as if I'm in the moment again. But I still know that it's my past. The perception of past and present balancing each other out so well, that's why I call the painting Harmony.
I have different approaches for painting and drawing. For painting, I start from a feeling or mixture of emotions of/about something, and create a composition after that. I feel like the image is already exists on the paper, so I let a mark on the paper lead the mark after." - So Youn Lee
This piece of original artwork comes signed by So Youn Lee and with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 1xRUN.
I was born in South Korea, and currently live and work in Irvine, CA. Being a super optimistic person, I draw from my own experience of encountering contradicting emotions in my daily life and guide them in to a realm of positivity. My approach to create an image is more like an excavation. I feel like I'm carving out of a canvas until an image eventually reveals itself. Recently, I got inspired from food, especially tropical fruits and colorful deserts with decorations. I love them because they make me curious to imagine what they taste like. As I imagine myself being totally satisfied with them, or being surprised by unexpected tastes, I feel emotions and I love to capture those emotions in my art. Life is very precious, and I love enjoying life with my gift of creating art, and wish I could share this happiness with many others.
