Timothy Hyunsoo Lee is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice explores the relationship between bodies, borders and rituals. Born in Seoul, South Korea and raised in New York City, he received his B.A. in Neuroscience, Biology and Studio Art from Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT) and his MFA in computational arts from Goldsmiths, University of London (UK). Looking at his practice through a kaleidoscopic lens that includes multicultural perspectives and both analog and technological processes, his works reference fortresses, imagined landscapes, fleshy bodies, and the transient moment in-between, to highlight the tumultuous experiences of immigration, of othering, and what belonging means within these communities as a queer body. He references legacies of history and tradition and often subverts their presentation through queer abstractions and other forms of deterioration – both naturally occurring but also forced.


Timothy’s works have been exhibited widely at venues such as the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, the Orlando Museum of Art, the Studio Museum, The Wallach Art Gallery of Columbia University, The YoungArts Foundation Gallery and La Casa Encendida, with a public project with the MTA Arts & Design (New York). He is represented in private and public collections around the world, including Facebook, The MTA Arts & Design, The Luciano Benneton Foundation, The Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, The Basu Foundation for the Arts, and Fundacion DOP.


He currently lives and works between Boston and New York City.

Currently represented by Sabrina Amrani Gallery (Madrid, Spain)
