Jennifer J Lee - Nowhere

  • Pressure Club 711 West Thompson Street Philadelphia, PA 19122 United States (map)

Statement about "NOWHERE"

Jennifer J Lee is an artist based in Brooklyn working primarily in paint and drawing. She considers herself to be an observational internet painter, mining images from various websites, google image searches, books and other miscellaneous image sources. The pictures she uses to paint from are intuitively culled but loosely chosen for their strange connotations. Lee’s paintings and drawings endeavor to transform these images into something more corporeal. Calling attention to something that might be missed from an ordinariness of an image. 

Lee published two new etchings with Pressure Club as a part of this exhibition.
