Artist Statement

Ingrid H Lee is a colourist, whose conceptual works are largely expressed in abstract expressionist style, on porcelain, canvas or mixed media.  She sees and feels colour, describing this process as a totally sensory and personal experience.   The unique feature about Ingrid's paintings is that they create a conceptual narrative which transcends space.  Ingrid states that her paintings become a collaborative experience or architectural interior which connects and resonates her concepts and art work with the investor and their environment.  This experience of connection is due results from her unique approach to colour and use of abstraction expressionism.

Ingrid prefers to paint in abstraction or expressionism as it enables her to tell her story with great power, energy and life; it is totally experiential, and thus each painting is unique.  She explains that

realistic forms and shapes are limiting to my ability to share my experience or the immediate flow of ideas and emotions.  Abstract expressionism allows me to open my heart and soul, and allow my raw feelings to flow and expand in a way which cannot conveyed in other styles.  Therefore there is no subject matter per se to hide behind or distract from….only total openness from myself at that particular moment.  It is a very real experience to capture, and essentially a part of me. (Ingrid H Lee)
