Alexandra Lee (ATYL)

ATYL (alexandra lee) is an interdisciplinary artist with a focus on installation and digital mixed-media.

Her multi-layered, concept-driven work incorporates themes of tradition, femininity, myths, and justice, as well as the delicate interplay between human connection, environment and history.

Lee works in a variety of media, including photography, computer generated and 3-D images, sculpture, new media, video installations, painting and drawing. Depending upon the concept behind each piece, Lee chooses the medium that provides the best method of communication. 

Generally, Lee's work is about time and being and the compulsions of day-to-day living and of love. Her work is about temporal versus eternal, the inter-relation of art and science, and human traditions and beliefs operate within the environments in which they live.

Since 2009, Lee's work has fallen within "Project Silkworm." The mixed- and multi-media pieces and series are inspired by the history of Lee's family's silk farm that was confiscated by the Communist government, as well as and the science and cultural contexts of sericulture.
