Closing Classics and Modernism in a single colored work that has his principle mainly gained by reproduction of stamped structures I no simple subject. Lee makes this symbiotic combination of opposites as good as rare of a young artist. It is like the Koreanerin's life history. Which, to promote your artistic skills, lets her life in Asia behind first in Bremen and then in Düsseldorf her art study. Everything may be the like of the viewer, which will give up this game from the matters, symmetry and irregularity, from countless repatriations and interruptions of the same, as the definitve works are spreaking for their.
 
Often the artist joins the advantages of the plastic work with the hanging works.
 
This products it from sound, resin or natural materials, which connects them in clear form and arrangement. In Addition, it is not only the product that becomes but also the frequencies which arise from theirs works and be established otherwise or are already embroidered in its own strength. Lees 'Working talks about experience with the repeat of work steps, with the equal arrangement of materials, savings and lines that live by human hand and its unregularity. So the works of Lees tell the world, which, despite destruction to press their components in standards, is always determined by unforeseled and infectible factors, and thus first developes their true face. This face is in any case a mor attention valuable.
