Lee works with images collected from digital media because of her interest in which images are handled in the digital world, as well as how she experiences them, and that is the main theme of her paintings. She was interested in the images being arranged in the digital world by mechanical, mathematical, and algorithmic calculations, and used it as her painting material. She always questions herself about the position of painting nowadays and the direction that painting tendencies evolve. Especially, how can paintings relate to current times and use of images? And how does a painting itself make a difference? Minjung Lee is studying and experimenting with those questions.
During her time as a Virtual Resident at GlogauAIR, Lee has worked to deepen her research about digital image and panting continuing with her projects and themes. She studied to expand her understanding of digital images and apply them to her paintings shown at this edition of Open Studios.
