Yoon Lee


Digital artist and painter Yoon Lee creates work that is a metaphor for the exponential growth of technology and information. The scale of these works are often 8 feet tall and 12 feet long and seem to reference the visual dynamism found in the modernist work of artist Jackson Pollock. The digital element employed allows the artist to achieve highly slick surfaces and a mechanical line quality which aids formally to her concept of technological growth. This is echoed by the shear visual magnitude which is forced onto the viewer by the scale and movement inherent in each piece. Lee received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute (2005), and she was a featured artist in New American Paintings (2006). This year the artist had a solo exhibition with the Luggage Store Gallery in SF, and participated with Pulse Miami through DCKT Contemporary. Next year the artist will be featured in a group exhibition titled “Euphorion: Art from San Francisco” at Pierogi Gallery, Leipzig, Germany. Lee has also participated in residency programs at 18th Street Art Center, Santa Monica, and at the Headlands Center for the Arts, Saulsalito, CA.
