Lee Eun Young (Pusan, South Korea, 1954) is a very special artist.
She works steady on an ever increasing oeuvre of great depth and impressive diversity. Her artistic position is actually quite hard to describe as Eun Young’s attitude and oeuvre does not fit within any pigeonhole.
She is a cross-over artist in the most sincere sense. In this respect her personal multicultural background and artistic identity might reflect this as well. Grown up in Korea, educated in Paris and working for quite some time now in The Netherlands, Eun Young produces original and non conformist, un-fashionable, lively and even humorous works with a most serious undertone.
Sometimes she takes position as a true autonomous artist, and then she feels quite well as an applied artist, fashion designer, poet and even performer. Creating and re-creating, based on a permanent search for identity, connections between now and then, here and there.
