Timothy Hyunsoo Lee
(b. 1990) is watercolor artist born in Seoul, South Korea, but raised in New York City. Educated at Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT, USA) with a degree in neuroscience, drawing and developmental biology, he uses his background in cytohistology to create large-scale watercolor paintings and sculptures that explore his identity as a Korean-American, and as someone who has suffered from a panic and anxiety disorder since his childhood. Timothy was the 2014 recipient of the VSA Emerging Young Artist Award given by the Kennedy Center (Washington DC, USA), as well as the International Emerging Artist Award in Dubai. He currently lives and works in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, and has exhibited in New York City, at the S. Dillon Ripley Center of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, and internationally in Seoul, Dubai, and Madrid. He is currently represented by Sabrina Amrani Gallery in Madrid, Spain where he had his first European solo exhibition titled “double-sided” in 2014.

From Cookstown, Northern Ireland, Kyle Barnes
graduated from The University of Ulster, Belfast, in 2010 with a BA Hons degree in Fine and Applied Arts. Since then he has won the Towry prize at the National Open Art Competition, exhibited at the prestigious Pallant House Gallery in Chicester and most recently been awarded the KPMG Young Artist Award at the RUA Belfast. He is interested in the process of painting, manipulating the material and working to its distinct qualities, while paying heed to differing textures in skin and how this is conveyed through tonal value and the temperature of colour. He is inspired by our perception of, and our interaction with each other through visual identity. The combination of expression, eye contact, concealment, colour and texture makes for a varied involvement with each of his works.
