Sujin Lee

Saatchi Yates present a solo exhibition of new paintings by artist Sujin Lee.

Lee was born in Jeju Island, Korea, famous for its rich landscapes, and has since moved to Seoul, a contrasting metropolitan hub of Korea where she currently lives and works.

This series of works is heavily inspired by Lee’s close circle of friends who influence the groups of female figures in her works. Lee states, “what are these girls? Is this me? Or is this just a painting?”, and in doing so asks us to consider her subjects as symbols of friendship, our own relationships with ourselves and others, and also intimate parts of the artists herself. Lee also takes great inspiration from the tranquillizing presence of nature in her hometown Jeju Island, and her works reflecting this often include backdrops of city scapes with thick leafy plants surrounding groups of female figures. Lee’s works are a true celebration of female friendship, sisterhood, and all that lies in-between. This show will be the largest exposition of Sujin Lee’s works to date.
