Artwork of the Week – Pui Lee


Liverpool artwork of the week 19 – ‘Little Girl Lost’ by Pui Lee in the Red Dot exhibition at Liverpool Academy of Arts until May 23 2008

This is a really good, interesting group show at the Academy. Try and get to see it before it finishes on Friday. There’s also the Randolph Caldecott exhibition at the same venue which is equally interesting.

You can see more of Pui Lee’s lovely works and the other artist involved on the red dot exhibitions website

Pui Lee is a practising artist, who works using an interdisciplinary approach, including: sculptural installation, video, drawing & printmaking. She has had considerable success to date having exhibited both nationally and internationally too.

The artist’s work often stems from autobiographical motivations and deals with ideas of space and scale; in particularly an emotive space. Pui is interested in ideas of phenomenal reality and notions of existence. Recurrent themes include the interplay between presence and absence as well as the concept of the boundary and the theatrical.
