New vision to the contemporary art from Asia Asia ,from Korea, Korea

"Tradition to Tomorrow"-'Resonance among lights'

Oriental art from the Eastern point of view                     

The Structural Duality of Chaos and Cosmos: Animus and Pathos

The language of MinJoo Lee is strait forward and appealing. It is delivered immediately. It faces her surroundings and the reality. She contemplates and solves problems on her own. the answers are then embodied in her paintings as a way back to the outer world. I carefully make comments of her paintings. They contain abundant forms, diverse meanings and many surrealistic symbols. I become skeptical about making any statement. Then I'm urged to tell everything I share with her. Maybe I was  taken over by her revealing messages. Or the messages themselves are reaching and penetrating.

She deviates from the restrictive  classification of materials and instruments. She utilizes the extremely civilized multimedia and the very traditional ones inherent to the traditional oriental painting to gain maximal expression of her inner world. She is very proactive. Could we ever see the frontier of her art world in terms of the artistic method and the area of concern itself?

Cosmos or Chaos

You may not be introduced to her art word casually. You should pass tension and nirvana then the metaphor of a void and a fullness, and finally the sophistication. Then you would see all the energy, rhythm, liveliness and motion. The strokes are traditional and liberal; The canvas is emotional and impulsive at one time and very moderate the other times.

The seemingly chaotic status does not reveal the lack of others. It rather represents the conflicts among immature orders to achieve the integration of the energy. They altogether connote some maximal plastic possibility. In her art, cosmos and chaos are not contradictory: they are complementary and resonant.

The itinerary

The artist has been using various art media and materials such as Indian painting, calligraphy, seal engraving, cubic, and even handmade paper paste relief. The aesthetic achievements of the traditional art world have been well integrated in her original art forms.

The artist is concentrating more on Indian ink and its automatism now. Her bold and drastic strokes might reinstate previously deconstructed objects back onto the canvas. Yet, in her divertimento with Indian ink, the ink itself has tempered and deep power, differentiated from other plain ebony colors.

Requiem for Father

Her artistic motives have included her ego, our society, our country, people, the world and the universe. Now her empirical meditation leads her to the search for animus and fatherhood. Her thought is very realistic and salutary. Why would it be that she commemorates her father now ten years after he passed away?

"My father was very practical and progressive. He pursued peace and integration yet, formally and informally, privately and publicly. It does not mean he was a pacifistic. He respected tradition but he was free from old legalism. He might have been paternalistic in that he worked and supported his family himself all his life. But he was a true feminist abolishing the discrimination of women. He loved his family dearly but lived and worked propatria.. He contributed the development of deserted bank of Hangang River. He initiated the globalization designing airports and constructing airstrip. His patriotism has been penetrating into me as water does into a piece of sponge. To me, fatherhood is patriotism and my country is my fatherland."

Her ego is very important to the art but she knows how to respect objective values. She is self-confident and consistent. She is also adaptable. She is an elite advocating what is righteous. As a person she is considerate. She reminds of a personality, well disciplined, positive, sincere, moderate and generous, what she calls fatherhood.

Why is it that there is some pathos of Electra? As a woman and artist, representing double minority in this society, she should be strongly encouraged as a true humanist.
