Jennie Jieun Lee (b. 1973 Seoul, South Korea) has challenged the conventions of ceramic sculpture for over a decade. Embracing the inherent vulnerability of the medium that is often tamed by its practitioners, Lee fires her works in various states of uprightness and collapse, and pours copious amounts of glaze on them. Disrupting ceramic’s historical association with controlled domesticity, Lee creates busts, vessels, and paintings that oscillate between the deliberate and accidental, and the decorative and distorted.

Lee earned her MFA from California State University Long Beach and a studio diploma from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. She is the recipient of several grants including Art Matters Foundation Grant (2019), The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship (2017), and the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant (2016). Her work has been exhibited internationally, and recent exhibitions include Cooper Cole, Toronto (2021); AF Projects, Los Angeles (2020); Halsey McKay Gallery, East Hampton (2020, 2018); Shulamit Nazarian, Los Angeles (2019); Martos Gallery, New York (2019, 2015); The Pit, Glendale (2017); and Marlborough Chelsea Viewing Room, New York (2016). Lee currently teaches ceramics at New York University and lives and works in Sullivan County, New York, USA.
