NY Studio Gallery is pleased to present Water and Dreams by Korean-American artist Jeong Julia Lee. Lee's dreamy oil paintings incorporate mixed media and epoxy resin to evoke images of water, imagination, and subconscious associations to freedom, memory, and the artist's Korean childhood. The exhibition focuses on Lee’s connection to nature and natural themes, often containing water as a central component. The artist explains that “water allows me to connect my realities to my dreams, while painting allows me to imagine those dreams and to create them. I create things at will: water moving, wind blowing, flowers blooming from water, even rocks floating on the water.” Her calligraphic non-western style, meditative subject matter and reflective surfaces tap into the collective subconscious and exude a calming effect on viewers.
