Yeaji LEE’s artwork is a magical world of fairytale and metaphorical meanings, where creatures of nature live in a barren and desolate environment, similar to our human lives. The crescent moon, located at the top of an unrealistic landscape, symbolizes the dangerous and quiet time between desert and real world, a time we dream of.
Cactus and moonlight provide a safe haven for animals, comforting them to rest. Heart Island at the bottom of the landscape gives warmth to the surroundings with its fluffy and soft fur texture. Animals in cactuses huddle together, looking at bonfires, the moon, and stars falling into the night sky, each with a variety of expressions.
Yeaji LEE’s peaceful scenes depict various beings resting in the circulating order of the natural world, creating works that comfort everyone’s tired mind. Her artwork invites you to escape into a dreamlike world, where nature and fantasy coexist in harmony.
