Biography

The major subject of Lee Jiyeon’s practice is ‘Space’ establishing a structural foundation of her work. She does not treat this subject as a secondary factor decided by activities of people or objects, which are usually understood as a satisfactory condition of the word’s lexical definition. In this aspect, Lee’s Draw in drawing series is not only a manifestation of her subjective recollections about numerous spaces, but also a kind of Hommage to them. The shapes of doors and stairs highlighted by a contrast of primary colours are continued overlapping and disappearing towards the inside of her picture plane. She completely eliminates traces of human or objects to allow spectators to concentrate on one space dependent upon its adjacent space’s shape and scale.
