Derived from Hyunmee Lee's Work

Untitled, Derived from Hyunmee Lee’s Work

I was in Santa Fe a few years ago and saw a show of Hyunmee Lee’s work at the Nuart Gallery.

Loved her use of yellow ochre with black and white, with gestural lines.

Her work reminds me of three other abstract expressionist artists: Clyfford Still, Robert Motherwell, and Franz Kline.

Here I am already on day 19 of my experiment of blogging for 30 days straight, sharing my everyday paintings.

Are you enjoying this?

I am inspired by Hyunmee Lee’s work and today’s piece is derived from one of hers.

Lee was born in Korea and in 1991 got a Master of Arts in Visual Arts from the Sydney College of Arts, University of Sydney. From 1997 to 2008 she taught at various universities. She retired from teaching art in 2008 (in Utah) to concentrate full-time on exhibiting her work in galleries in the USA.

You can find our more about Lee at her website. Have you seen her work before?
