This year’s Adelaide Perry Prize for Drawing finalists’ exhibition will open this Friday 24th February at PLC Sydney’s Adelaide Perry Gallery. In its seventh year, the $20,000 acquisitive art award is among the most significant prizes for drawing in the country.
Hyun-Hee Lee investigates aspects of memory and how those memories can be interpreted visually. She uses personal diaries, recall and cultural understanding as her source material. Because she is removed from her birth country, Korea, the works have special and poignant personal significance for her.
