Lee, Ufan
"Painting is not merely reproducing ready thoughts on a canvas, it is engagement with the concern to create encounters.""The world is larger than myself and is and obscure thing. My tendency has been constantly to change places with the other when faced with this indistinct other. My works are that place where I meet and relate with the other.""I think that the attempt to embrace the outside without appropriations its strangeness, through the artist's strict self-limitation, is based on an idea of coexistence which is not circumscribed by modernity.""When [This] self moves into space, it transforms one of the corners of the square or rectangle of its periphery into the site of a new center, around which new extremities are established, and so forth, until space is conquered."
