- A Solo Exhibition of Shireen Lee

ARTIST ARRIVES: Fresh from her sojourn in Japan, Shireen Lee unveils the remarkable body of work accomplished during her residency in Fukuoka

JOHOR BARU: ARTIST Shireen Lee's residency in Japan began in December 2009. It was during her two-and-a-half-year stay in Fukuoka that she developed her own unique painting style.
A series of landscape paintings entitled Discovery of Memory in mixed media, a representation of memories in her hometown Seri Kembangan during her younger days, is among the remarkable body of work she accomplished in Japan.
Her solo exhibition Turning Point: 2010-2013 Selected Artworks of Shireen Lee unveils her work in Malaysia for the first time since her return from Japan.
About 30 paintings in various media are showcased in the exhibition held until Oct 30 at Old Street Studio, 52 Jalan Tan Hiok Nee, here.
Lee had been invited to display her work at the studio at the beginning of the year, which was when she started planning and selecting the pieces to meet the theme "Turning Point".
"My stay in Japan has brought me fresh energy and a new perspective to my art career.
"It was a turning point in my painting style and way of presenting ideas," said Lee.
The event is a prelude to her solo exhibition at the NSTP Gallery in Kuala Lumpur next year.
Her mentor, the late Tan Tong, said this of her: "The flourish of her art in this series is pure visual delight. Her latest landscape paintings are of dynamic colours; the shapes and forms are a clear mix of the mysterious and surreal in nocturnal settings which are stimulating and exciting."
Lee, born 1973 in Kuala Lumpur, graduated with a degree in urban and regional planning from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 1997.
Starting with watercolours at the age of 10, Lee now paints in various media including oil, acrylic and mixed.
Lee made her debut in the local art scene in 2002.
Old Street Studio is open from 11am to 6pm on weekdays and from 11am to 10pm on Saturdays.
