This is a unique work, hand-signed by the artist on the back of the painting.
Jeewi Lee’s work predominantly deals with traces by thematising the past, presence and absence. The trace bears witness to time while also reflecting its history and own production process. In her installations, videos and painting series, the trace exists as residue of past lives, a visual allegory for lived experience, place and memory. The artist carries out intensive research on materials and their properties by transforming or combining them. This leads to her exploring the poetic context of the individual materials.
