The Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust Prizewinner: Seung Ae Lee

5 September 2017 - 9 September 2017

Marlborough Graphics is pleased to present the work of Seung Ae Lee, winner of The Valerie Beston Artists’ Trust Prize 2016.

Seung Ae Lee makes meticulous, detailed animations which derive from drawings of everyday objects and the natural world. Her subject matter includes animals, plants and insects.

Thousands of drawings go into each animation of approximately 5-10 minutes projected onto a wall. Seung draws with pencil on paper as it feels like a natural extension of herself “and more than any other material, it has allowed me to be absorbed in my work”.

The exhibition will comprise three animations: A Cabinet 2017 (7 minutes), Becoming 2017 (10 minutes) and A Lamp 2017 (4 minutes). Also included are two of Seung’s earlier works, A Frog 2016 (5 minutes) and A Bird 2016 (7 minutes) with original drawings.

Seung Ae Lee was born in 1979 in Seoul. She graduated from Sungshin Women’s University, Seoul, with a BA in Painting and attained an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art in 2016. Seung has had solo exhibitions in Korea, Japan, USA and the UK and has been included in numerous group exhibitions.
