About Timothy Hyunsoo Lee

Timothy Hyunsoo Lee’s meticulous drawings and paintings are informed by biological, psychological, and emotional references. Using watercolor and gouache, he builds fractal-like compositions that resemble psychedelic honeycombs, cellular structures, and other repetitious networks. Informed by his studies in neuroscience and his abandoned dream of attending medical school, Lee uses his art as a means to explore his own psychological state. Similar to Yayoi Kusama with her dot paintings, he channels his own anxieties and neuroses into detailed artworks that he describes as a “a cartography of his psychopathology.”
