About the Artist
Hannah Lee was born and raised in Louisiana. She received her BFA in Painting from Baylor University in 2012 and her MFA in Painting from The New York Academy of Art in 2020.
The integrity of what we encounter depends largely on the integrity of our approach towards interpreting it. It is the quality of looking that determines what we see. What it means to be truly human is found in a space beyond the surface of our own immediate perception- somewhere between experience and response, intention and interpretation. I accept my inability to not only understand others fully but myself as well. There is a disconnect between who we truly are, how we present ourselves, and how we are perceived— my works are painted as I considered how we might reconcile those gaps in more constructive ways.
