Joyce Lee has been painting in in a variety of styles and subject ranges including realistic still life, portraits and detailed landscapes in oil. Currently, she is working on reinterpreting Korean traditional painting using cephalopod ink and water color on rice paper into oil paintings. Using a more modern or western medium she is hoping to present traditions and customs that are getting lost with the pace of life today. As people are focused on “what’s next”, I would like to present an opportunity for people to reflect on “what was”. This is a new challenge for me and I look forward to sharing my journey. As a part of her symbolism study of her Korean Ancient paintings, she would love to relate and study her flower artworks into symbolic meaning of many different countries. For example, peonies are know as the flower of wealth and honor in ancient China and Korea. I am hoping to find “what other meaning for each object around our daily life” from my paintings.
