Mary Bernadette Lee


Mary is based as an artist in Singapore and has been practicing since 2014.

She is an artist, educator, illustrator, co-creator, observer, and collector of information and experiences through collaborations with communities. She is currently an adjunct lecturer at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts.

Her artistic practice takes the phenomenological approach investigating relationships between body, architecture and space, and psychological states relating to Self, Identity, and Home. The relational dialectics between the physiological and the psychological is expressed through her works that foreground the architecture of her as a person and an artist.

Her works manifest in paintings, illustrations, linocut prints, mono-print prints, woodcut prints, clay sculptures, textile installation, and publication. She loves to explore how mediums – traditional, natural, and man-made materials – inform one another, resulting in innovative presentations and new meanings.

She has participated in exhibitions held in the Singapore Art Museum, The Substation, Esplanade, and Objectifs – Centre for Photography & Film. She also worked closely with National Gallery Singapore, Asian Civilisations Museum, Facebook (Singapore), and Apple (Singapore) to create content for workshops and family-oriented programmes.
