Hyun Hee Lee was born in Korea and currently resides in Noraville on the Central Coast. The local artist has maintained a strong connection with her country of birth and regularly visits.
Sourced from diaries and notebooks, Journey Home reflects upon the spiritual and emotional journey that has become an integral part of Hyun’s life, with a focus on when the artist immigrated to Australia. These stories and remembered events are nurtured, revisited and relived through Hyun’s paintings and installations.
“I use personal text or script, which is derived from calligraphy, to tell stories and recreate moments in time which have significance in connecting me to my family and culture.”
