ARTIST STATEMENT: “I want my work to give the viewer a sense of visual pleasure through psychological intimidation.” –Adehla Lee
Adehla’s work reveals an extremely festive and deeply serious emotion at the same time, which can be named as a serious ceremony or magnificent ritual. Her inspiration comes from Korean Shamanism, reincarnation, the curiosity of after life, the process of organic decomposition, fantasy stories, and the experiences from working with the mentally ill when she was an art therapist.
She works in painting and installation. Painting is more about the visualization of her imaginative world, while her installation is about the physical experience of painting.
