LUNA JUNGEUN LEE
I utilise early forms of mass reproduction, represented by various handcrafted paintings and printing techniques, to produce the resulting images onto acetate or perspex; the layered, semi-transparent collages mimicking the digital imagery that flows through our consciousness via our now-ubiquitous and ever-present personal glowing screens. I want to create things that exist and traverse between the margins of two worlds. It is familiar and yet strangely out of place, just as those fragile, arbitrary images navigating out on unknown paths.
