Howard Greenberg Gallery has brought in artist Jungjin Lee for the holidays. On display will be not one but two different photo sets by the Korean.
Jungjin Lee’s photography is imbued with elemental vastness and wonder. A former assistant of Robert Frank, she creates meditative landscapes with a unique interplay between image and material, capturing moments in time that are uniquely her own. Using a multilayered process that integrates elements of painting, Lee’s photographs exude a materiality not often found in photography. She aims to find “a fundamental essence of things being captured through my intuition, the inner state of my mind, beyond my thinking.”
Lee was one of twelve renowned photographers who traveled to Israel and the West Bank between 2009 and 2013 to create work for This Place, a major traveling exhibition initiated by Frederic Brenner, which will be exhibited at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach from October 15, 2015 – January 17, 2016 and the Brooklyn Museum from February 12 – June 5, 2016.
Of her work in Israel and the West Bank, Lee has said, “What I am searching for in my photographs is something about life. It’s about the solitary state of being human. Life changes on the surface, like an ocean. You have the constant movement of water on the surface, but deep down, at the core there is no movement.”
Unnamed Road/Everglades will be exhibited through December 12, 2015.
