Rim Lee's latest art series 'The Mess of Emotion,' examines the "emotional aspect of human mental relationship[s]." Lee explains that, "even though we live in different environments, at a certain point in time we feel the same when we look at an object."

Her hyperrealistic series features a woman in an emotional reverie covered in black and white paint. The use of black and white symbolizes the binaries of human existence; that is, the differences and similarities we have with one another as individuals and within relationships.

The finished result is an incredibly eloquent piece that articulates a dramatic range of human expression. Each painting in the series is teeming with life, practically jumping off the page. Ultimately, Lee has produced a stunning body of work that elicits human empathy.
