Human body has its own language, through which it expresses joy and suffering — beyond any mythology, cosmology, or religio-physiological speculation. But it is also a language in itself, a book of flesh. You just have to read it in the proper way. Joyce Lee chose to explore the humanistic — and sometimes humorous — aspects of love and sexuality through the symbolism of the human body itself. And in these cases, a good deal of provocation is never an aspect so easy to avoid.
Native of Seoul Korea, Joyce majored in English literature & language at university. She worked for airlines for several years, before deciding to follow her true passion as an artist, and return to art school, earning her BFA degree at Seoul National University. By working with watercolors and pencils, she has previously done artwork for Playboy magazine, Numero magazine Berlin, The Learning Company, LG Corporation, and FIAT Motors, among others.
