More about Grace Eunmi Lee:

I am interested in things that are unnoticed and appear to have little or no significance on a regular basis. As we strive to do better, we often become oblivious to things that surround us. Using forms inspired by micro-organisms, I want to emphasize the importance of the individuality and the collective entity. The creatures are an interconnection of reality and existence. By taking the time to observe and give our attention to these small details, we are soon faced with another form of existence waiting for our recognition. My work is presented in a monumental presence through the accrual of small imaginative elements.
