ARTIST INFO

About 

Sujin Lee (b. 1983) explores negative emotions through art, inspired by personal experiences and the pandemic. Her work transforms anxiety and fear into everyday imagery, creating a paradoxical world where mundane objects evoke deep unease. Lee's meticulous technique invites viewers to reflect on anxiety, blending tension with tranquility to foster empathy and introspection.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artworks 

“In these two works, one depicts a hand painting over a wall, and the other shows a hand fixing furniture. People often repaint surfaces when they dislike the color or material, or when it is no longer needed. Similarly, repairs are made when the current structure or assembly is incomplete. The hands engaged in these actions symbolize the notion of retrying despite mistakes or errors. 

The hands frequently appearing in my works symbolize anonymity, guiding viewers to focus solely on the situations within the paintings. The monotone backgrounds serve to erase any contextual distractions.” 

Please do not bid on artwork in our Art on a Postcard auctions if you intend on selling the artwork after you have purchased it. This auction has been organised for charity; all artworks have been generously donated by the artists to raise money for charity. When a work is sold on the secondary market it damages our relationship with the artist and prevents us from fundraising.
