“My works seek to elaborate on the link between humanity and nature. I’m trying to translate the familiar and strange in the elegant patterns around us, as well as describe my thoughts on environmental consciousness. In my work I choose natural paradigms: flowers, trees, leaves, fruit, and animals, and I contrast that with human made structures, machinery, technology, etc. by juxtaposing these themes and shapes organically and rhythmically using recycled mixed media as well as traditional painting techniques. My goal is to create discrete moments that can relay the strange and beautiful circumstance that is humanity and our place in the natural world. I feel that in understanding that the human influence on the environment is as much a part of nature as is what born from the earth, that we can find balance in our habits and perception, and beauty in what is both taken from, and given back to, the Earth.”- Yuni Lee
