Comment
メゾチントとシルクスクリーンを併用して制作されている韓国の作家で、韓国内外で活躍されています。引き込まれるような黒と鮮やかな色面がとても印象的な作品で、記号化された形の中に潜む作者の言葉を読み取って頂きたい。

Lee Youngae is a Korean artist. She combines mezzotint and silkscreen method in her work. The way of using colours such as deep black and bright colours gives a strong impression to the viewer while the encoded figures hold hidden messages. She is active in Korea and overseas.
