Rebecca Yunjeong Lee
BA Fine Art, Central Saint Martins 2018
Rebecca's work is a reflection of the past. Inspired by trauma suffered as a young person, her work is a self-portrait viewed through the lens of traumatic memory and is part of the process of moving forward with her life.
Louise Borgeois, Tracey Emin and Francis Bacon all influenced the works, which were Rebecca's first foray into using digital applications to create art. Having previously worked in only acrylic, Rebecca digitally enhanced the pictures so that she was blended into the acrylic paint. The results are compositions which push the boundaries of digital and analogue, experiments in space.
"It may not be an easy concept to grasp but I wish to pass on my emotions and feelings. I hope individuals will think about victims and incidences in the past and make a change for the future."
