Golden Time 7, Yun Jeong Lee, Mixed media

Artist Statement

I present mixed media works on the theme of "Touch" through my own personal spiritual journey. I explore enlightenment from the light which, to me, comprises of invitations, visitations and habitations. I invite viewers to visit my work through the act of interacting and participating. I wish there would be communication, enlightenment, healing  and recovery when inhabiting my art. I challenge the viewers to identify the source of light in their own lives.
