Lee Jija 2017

How the works by Lee, under the very strict self-control, are produced?
Everybody may suppose that she starts to paint the color field as an ordinary action painter.
But, itfs a definite misunderstanding.

She starts to paint a line above all.
And she confirms the certain position of the line on the canvas, then she starts to work the color field. 
Such a clear relation of master and servant occupies all of her works. 
Her work, established by the elements as less as possible,  should be announced not as Action Painting but as Minimal Art.
