"Sandra Sunnyo Lee: Self No Self - Meditation Paintings"
2003-03-21 until 2003-04-11
Andrew Bae Gallery
Chicago, IL, USA United States of America

The Andrew Bae Gallery starts its spring season with an exhibition of paintings by Korean–born artist Sandra Sunnyo Lee. Educated at Korea’s Ewha Women’s University and the San Francisco Art Institute, the artist has exhibited her paintings throughout the US and abroad. This will be Lee’s first solo exhibition in Chicago.

Lee paints closely cropped views of the face, its features overlain with gestural strokes of translucent resin glazes or columns of hand–lettered Korean or English text. In these works, the artist gives visual expression to the Zen teaching of Self—No Self, a meditation on the path to overcoming alienation between an individual and society or nature.

Serenely expressive, these finely executed paintings convey a mood of calm, the artist’s antidote to the stresses of modern life. According to Lee, the work explores “Existence [as] a constant coming and going — unceasingly chang[ing]. Out of the apparent void comes being. My images mirror this truth of mind and experience.” The artist works and lives in San Francisco. She will be present at the opening.

Works by this artist, and more, are on view in our gallery in River North. For directions, click on the contact link above. Whether your visit is virtual, or actual, you will find work of resonating personal imagery, in are that combines simplicity and exquisite craftsmanship with distinct philosophical content, uniting modern sensibilities with traditional Eastern ideas.
