Chiayin Lee: Embracing the Zen of Nature at Apricus Art Collection

At Apricus Art Collection, we are thrilled to showcase the evocative and serene artworks of Chiayin Lee, a talented artist from Taiwan who has made her home in the picturesque region of Brittany, France. Inspired by the natural beauty of her surroundings and the philosophical underpinnings of Zen, Chiayin's work is a testament to her journey of self-discovery and artistic expression.

A Journey of Self-Acceptance and Artistic Discovery

Chiayin Lee’s artistic journey is inspired by a pivotal decision to fully embrace her identity and the adventures it brings—a sentiment echoed in the words of Simone de Beauvoir: “I accept the greatest adventure of being me.” This philosophy has deeply influenced her work, leading her to explore her internal and external landscapes through art.

Inspired by Nature and Japanese Aesthetics

As someone deeply moved by the beauty of the ocean, Chiayin finds inspiration in both the natural world and the artistry of Japanese dry landscape gardens. These elements converge beautifully in her artwork, where she captures the essence of stunning coastal views and the subtle intricacy of rock formations. Her artistic medium of choice, ink and gansai (Japanese watercolor), allows her to express both the strength and the tranquility of nature in her creations.

Modern Sumi-e Paintings

Chiayin Lee’s use of traditional tools—rice paper and brush—ties her work to the ancient art of sumi-e, or Japanese ink painting, while her techniques bring a modern sensibility to this time-honored form. The strategic incorporation of whitespace in her artwork is not merely a stylistic choice but a deliberate invitation for viewers to embark on a peaceful, Zen-like journey with her. This approach not only highlights the physical beauty of her subjects but also infuses them with a sense of calm and introspection.

Art as a Portal to Peace

In Chiayin’s hands, art becomes more than a visual experience; it is a portal to tranquility, a way to engage with the world that encourages peaceful reflection and a deeper connection to nature. Her paintings are meditative explorations that invite the viewer to pause, reflect, and find solace in the simplicity and beauty of depicted scenes.
