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 "cartography of his psychopathology".

Land Acknowledgment: Gage Academy of Art would like to acknowledge that we stand on the traditional ancestral lands of the Coast Salish peoples—specifically the Duwamish People, past and present—and honor, with gratitude, the land itself, the Duwamish Tribe, and their ancient heritage. Without them, we would not have access to this gathering, dialogue and learning space. We ask that we take this opportunity to thank the original caretakers of this land, who are still here.
