About Timothy

Of Chinese descent, Tim Hon Hung Lee draws from the stories and memories of his family and ancestors, establishing a visual harmony between his Eastern heritage and Western upbringing. Executed in Chinese ink on rice paper, Lee’s drawings combine the philosophies, techniques and media from these two spheres of influence.

Timothy explains his work by saying, “My works are can be viewed as a mediation between my European upbringing and my chinese heritage. They are in one way an attempt to bridge the chasm of the two aesthetic approaches and ideologies. As a result my work is charged with polarities and dichotomies. The resolute and the unresolved play heavily in the images which in turn highlight the complexities of the human condition. I’m not looking for perfection, Im more interested with the near misses.”
