Mary Bernadette Lee



6 August – 8 August 2018

Mary Bernadette Lee (Mrydette) is based as an artist in Singapore. Her practice is a phenomenological approach to understanding the relationship between exterior topography of body, architecture and place, and the interior tapestry of psychological states. This relational dialectics between the physiological and the psychological is expressed through her paintings that foreground the architecture of her as a person and an artist.

Her work thrives on spontaneity of individual autonomy in art making. She works mainly with traditional mediums such as graphite, acrylic, ink and clay. She believes that Art should be accessible and as such, uses Art as a medium to work with children and the underprivileged to encourage expression and creation.

Mary graduated from the National University of Singapore with a BA in English Literature and Communications & New Media in 2006. She also graduated from Nanyang Technological University School of Art, Design and Media in 2014 with a BFA (Hons) in Visual Communication.
