Based in London and New York City, Zaun Lee is an interdisciplinary artist working in painting, printmaking, collage, and installation. In her recent Lego-Cloud series, she composes cutouts of Lego drawings by arbitrary formulas. Visually exploring epistemology and linguistics, her process mirrors how humans can only perceive through layers of logic, thought and constructed elements, rather than perceiving directly. The final compositions emulate formations of the bitmap clouds in classic video games. Connoting architecture, cityscape, and topology, she straddles between seeing and perceiving.
Lee studied at College of Fine Arts, Seoul National University and graduated Cum Laude in Philosophy from Alfred University. Her recent exhibitions include The Church Center of the United Nations, New York; The Klapper Gallery at Queens College of New York; Soomdo Art Space, Seoul, Korea; and Lite-Haus Galerie, Berlin, Germany. They have been also featured in The New York Times, The Brooklyn Rail, Art Critical, and others.
