Drawing: Again

Jongho Lee
October 8 - November 5, 2016

"This exhibition is an exploration of the boundaries of drawing as well as an effort to stretch the boundaries of drawing. Using a mix of conventional and unconventional materials including but not limited to charcoal, india ink, house paint, tape, and canvas, the artist aims to deconstruct what a drawing can mean by abstracting and representing different subjects. 
 
All of the drawings have to do with means of production, whether that be the production that takes place inside of my studio, or the general socio-economic term. The subjects explored in each of the different windows range from illegal goods obtained through means of poaching, to factory production of glass bottles. In other cases, there is a more personal exploration that had do with the production that takes inside the studio, and on a surface."
