SOO IM LEE
Soo Im Lee (b. 1954, Seoul, Korea) works across a wide range of media including printmaking. She creates bold, multi-layered, intuitively derived paintings with imagery and detail that bring to mind complex three-dimensional spatial structures, intricately woven mesh, and lush forests of lines. In her limited-etching print Roofs, delicately etched lines render patterns of tiled roof creating abstract composition. Soo Im Lee moved to New York in 1981 and continues to live and work in New York. She received a B.F.A. and M.F.A. in Painting from Hong-Ik University in Seoul (1976 and 1978, respectively) and a M.A. in Printmaking from New York University (1984). Recent exhibitions include Soo Im Lee: Across Time and Place, Art Projects International (2017); Marking 2, Art Projects International, NY (2016); Summer Selections, Art Projects International, NY (2014); Curate NYC, Rush Arts Gallery, NY (2013); Intersecting Lines, Art Projects International, NY (2012); 911 Arts: A Decade Later, Commons Gallery, New York University (2011), Absence, Queens Museum of Art: Partnership Gallery, NY (2010); and Irrelevant, Arario Gallery, NY (2010).
