藝術家李燕華自2006年開始，陸續收集世界年代久遠的舊書籍。這些作品是以美國作家Stephen Vincent Benet在1942年紐約出版的作品為基底，書籍內容涵蓋短篇小說與詩集。
Artist Yen-Hua Lee has been collecting vintage books from around the world since 2006. This work is based on a book by American writer Stephen Vincent Benet, Published in New York in 1942, the book covers short stories and poems.
With her background in Chinese calligraphy and traditional painting, Lee creates artwork that is full of spirit and expresses philosophical ideas through various symbols. Her drawings on the book’s pages create a dialogue that transeconds through time and space with the author of the book.
Lee takes each set of pages and illustrates on them, as if they were the front cover of the book. Furthermore, the pages are arranged from top to bottom and left to right, which is the way Chinese characters are arranged in writing. The viewer can see the relationship between two different cultures in the Chinese arrangement of English text. Different possibilities of communication—between the pages, the writer and the artist, or the outer and the inner—are thus unfolded before us.
