Jennifer J. Lee

Jennifer J. Lee paints densely compact images with oil on jute in a quasi photo-realistic style. Her subjects, sourced from internet searches, sit at the intersection of recognizability and genericism. Lee has referred to her deep image searches as a metaphorical road trip for observational painting, with the artist moving forward into parts unknown. The rough jute she paints on has a diffusing quality; the surface forces Lee’s brush strokes to fizzle at the edges, creating a low-res quality that refers back to the digital nature of the source imagery. The resulting painted textures accumulate into images that obliquely refer to abstract painting movements such as Op Art, but ultimately relate to the artist’s own personal perspective.
