Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts Presents White Shadow, an Installation by Jin Lee
WILMINGTON, DE.- The Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts presents Jin Lee’s solo exhibition, titled White.Shadow. on view in the Beckler Family Members’ Gallery through August 23, 2009. Jin Lee’s installations of elaborate cut-paper composites create dreamlike spaces. The complex networks of cutouts and the shadows they cast create intricate landscapes and characters.

Jin Lee’s lines are largely abstractions that evoke natural forms. Motivated by the idea of mutation, she states that her drawing-based cutouts “grow and explode” into a continually expanding body of work that she began in 2006. She either works from scans of her articulated drawings directly on paper and canvas or creates them on the computer with a digital drawing tablet. She works predominantly with white paper but also uses paper that she has either painted a range of light and dark grays or printouts of scanned marbleized patterns that she then cuts out leaving only the drawn lines. Pinned to the wall or hanging from monofilament thread so that the paper cutouts overlap in layers, the shapes and forms of the paper cutouts trigger our perceptual instincts to make cognitive associations with flowers, roots, skeletonized leaves, and trees. While these are all valid, Lee’s inspirations are varied and specific, from formations and patterns found in cacti, half-rotten pepper seeds, and octopus tentacles.

JIN LEE (JERSEY CITY, NJ) is presently a PhD Candidate, Art and Art Education, Columbia University Teachers College and received an MFA, Pratt Institute and a BFA, Seoul National University. Lee has had numerous exhibitions in venues including Jersey City Museum, Jersey City, NJ, Philadelphia Art Alliance, Philadelphia, PA, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY. Lee is a recipient of the Myers Prize, Myers Collection, Columbia University and was a recipient of the Circle Award for Outstanding Academic Achievement, Pratt Institute. Lee’s work can be found in the collections of the National Museum of Contemporary Art / ART BANK, Korea and the Icon Gallery, Seoul, Korea.
