Haesook “Hannah” Lee was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. Lee immigrated to America with her family when she was in college. Being an immigrant surrounded by unfamiliar ways, she turned towards Christianity as her base, which gave her the chance to explore her inner self. It was then that her journey of faith and the journey to her inner life began. Lee’s art is about the process of transforming inner self in the new life which represents God based on specific Biblical passages. Since she began painting in 2010, her work has evolved to assemblage and sculpture, and then to installation art. Lee’s artistic goal is to express and convey the new life within her through her work based on the Scripture, and this allows her to share her subjective and individual belief objectively and universally. Lee has had solo and group exhibitions since 2011.
