Visiting Artist: Jimin Lee

Jimin Lee will speak about the conceptual transition in her work from images focused on mundane personal objects that have contact with parts of her body to a newer focus on images that use objects such as cars, elevators or airplanes that transport her entire body to a new location. She will also describe her recent research activities and her experiences at residencies in Spain, Australia, Finland and India.

Jimin Lee is a Korean-born painter and print media artist.  A graduate of Seoul National University (BFA, Painting; MFA, Printmaking), she also holds a second MFA in printmaking from San Francisco Art Institute. Lee has had solo exhibitions at Anchor Graphics in Chicago; QCC Art Gallery at the City University of New York; Don Soker Contemporary Art in San Francisco; DoART Gallery/Hyundai Gallery in Seoul; Shirota Gallery in Tokyo; AndrewShire Gallery in Los Angeles; Megalo Gallery in Canberra, Australia; and Open Studio Gallery in Toronto, Canada.  Lee has shown in over 100 group exhibitions nationally and internationally.
