In the early 1990s Jungjin Lee ventured into the endless expanse of America on multiple trips, where she captured archaic, primal images of deserts, rocks, undergrowth, and cacti. Drawing on her South Korean heritage, the artist developed a highly unique pictorial language in series such as Ocean, On Road, Pagodas, Things, and Wind, in which her fundamental interest in nature and culture is expressed in a space of poetic resonance. In her work, Jungjin Lee taps her profound understanding for materiality, texture and craftsmanship. Working with Liquid Light, she applies photosensitive emulsion onto rice paper with a coarse brush. The publication presents eleven groups of works, commentated and contextualised in essays by Lena Fritsch, Hester Keijser, and Liz Wells, and provides, for the very first time, an overview of an oeuvre spanning two decades.
