Jin Lee: A Paper Landscape
Project Gallery
September 17, 2009 – February 20, 2010

Carefully cutting her installations from individual sheets of paper, Jersey City-based artist Jin Lee has created this dramatic work specifically for the Museum’s project gallery. The artist is principally inspired by the cycles of life seen in nature, in which a seed becomes a network of roots, which then becomes a growth of other organic forms. Her work is also indebted to the history of cut paper and to Asian landscape drawings and paintings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, though Ms. Lee has translated them into twenty-first century environments.

Her interest in cycles of nature and of the relationship of one organic object to another is constant.
