Lee’s work resonates with the history and spirit of abstract painting. Freely thrown layers of clay and glaze are amassed—dripped, overlaid, poured, splattered and sponged—forming a harmonious network of shape, gesture, and color. This piece is part of her “Mask” series that speaks to Lee’s own inner voices, experiences, and phobias, and explores the effects of how societal norms shape the human psyche. Each mask personifies a different face that many of us wear to combat self-inflicted stigmas and general uneasiness when engaging with people in an unmediated environment.

About Jennie Jieun Lee

View Profile »

Brooklyn-based artist Jennie Jieun Lee creates an array of ceramic objects, including wheel-thrown, hand-altered vessels; masks with morphing, multi-part features; and collections of vibrant mugs, plates, planters, and trays that she calls “glazemoods.” All of these works are unified by their colorful surfaces, which, according to Lee, “mimic, articulate, and navigate emotional and psychological spaces.” Her work has been exhibited across the United States and internationally at galleries such as Martos Gallery, New York; TSA LA, Los Angeles, USA; Galerie Lefebvre et Fils, Paris, France; and Jacob Bjorn Gallery, Arhus, Denmark. In January 2016, she will be included in a two-person exhibition with Mariah Robertston at 11R in New York.
