Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present Over The Moon, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist So Youn Lee. The exhibition will be Lee's inaugural solo presentation at Hashimoto Contemporary.

For Over The Moon, the artist will be exhibiting a series of new paintings featuring her iconic young genderless explorer Mango and their sidekick, a white French Bulldog Choco. Traveling through pastel hued environments echoing Lee's memories and dreams, Mango looks out at the viewer, their large eyes sparkling with curiosity. Mango's cloud-like hair swirls around their head, melding into the landscape. Rainbows, bubbles, eyeballs and stars are recurring symbols which can be found scattered throughout the work.

The seminal piece in the exhibition, titled The Lunch depicts Mango multiplied, posed and lounging reminiscent to Manet's Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe. A plump Choco is in the foreground, sitting on the grass and looking off into the distance, while luminous strokes of paint dance across the surface like shooting stars.

After two years spent exploring themes of inner sorrow, confusion and a desire to feel connection, the new body of work exhibits optimism and the search for silver linings. The artist captures a feeling of innocence; the gestural movements of her bright color palette brimming with a jubilant sense of celebration. Full of hope and ready to move forward, Lee considers this body of work the closure of her pandemic series.

Please join us Saturday, June 18th from 6pm to 8pm for the opening of Over The Moon. The artist will be in attendance. In order to ensure the health and safety of visitors and staff, please note that masks are required for entry.

The exhibition will be on view Saturday, June 18th to Saturday, July 9th. For more information, additional images, or exclusive content, please email NYC Director, Jennifer Rizzo at
