    George Billis Gallery is pleased to announce Ke-Sook Lee and her work at the New York location. This exhibtion will run from March 31st to April 25th, 2015. The opening reception will be held at the George Billis Gallery located at 525 West 26th Street between 10th and 11th avenues on Thursday, April 2nd, from 6-8 pm.

     

    Using thread as a mark-making device and as a reference to memory, both personal and universal, Lee hand-embroiders transfigured women on recycled vintage household linen and fiber material. For the Ode to Sprouts installation, threads are colored with the pigment from the acrylic pallet in her studio, and gathered to explore the site specific installation to transform the drama of life. Her process of art making is through patience and meditation and is poured in thread-by-thread and stitch-by-stitch. The ambiguous transfigured images that flow out spontaneously from her unconscious cast themselves into the work, like a shadow of her being.

     

    Thread was chosen as the primary medium for the work because it provides a sense of comfort and protection like we experience and receive everyday by wearing clothes. Thread also represents an ordinary household material that reminds Lee of her grandmother and mother, and how they used it all their lives and taught each generation how to sew and embroider as a necessary skill for woman. Thread is the most natural medium for making marks about the feminine experience according to Ke-Sook.

     

    Cultivating thread and hand embroidery, the work compares women to plants, representing their growth from seeds to blossoms. Many women struggle with their ability to have both a domestic life and a career outside of the home. This exhibition represents woman as seedpods, or flowers with the potential to transform and bloom.

     

    The George BIllis Gallery marks its 18th year in the Chelsea Art district and its sister gallery is located in the burgeoning gallery district of Culver City in Los Angeles.

    "Using thread as a mark-making device and reference to memory, both personal and universal, I hand-embroider transfigured women on recycled vintage household linen and fiber material. The multi scales of embroidered drawings are gathered to explore the specific site for installations to transform the drama of life. Cultivating thread and stitch marks into drawings, the work explores the process of art making with patience, meditatively done stitch by stitch. The ambiguous transfigured images that flow out with spontaneity from my unconscious casts themselves on my work like a shadow of my being and soul. 


    My work compares women to plants, representing their growth from seeds to blossoms. Many women struggle with their ability to have both a domestic life and a career outside of the home. I represent woman as seedpods, or flowers, or as tree and leaf women with the potential to transform and bloom. 


    I chose thread as the primary medium for my work because it provides a sense of comfort and protection like we experience and receive everyday by wearing clothes. Thread also represents an ordinary household material that reminds me of my grandmother and mother and how they used it all their lives and taught each generation how to sew and embroider as a necessary skill for woman. Thread feels like the most natural medium for making marks about the feminine experience." 

    Ke-Sook Lee, Berkley, CA, 2014 


    "By recording non-text- based imagery that speaks concerns, dreams and fears of past generations of women inn Korea, her narrative memories take on universal significance as commentary on the role of women, in the domestic arena..." 

    Pricked: Extreme Embroidery, Museum of Arts and Design, New York, 2007 


    "Lee's conceptual installations convey a thoughtful declaration of endurance and grace born from, and in the artist's words, "seedpods filled with dreams". 

    Material Girl, Riverside Museum, Los Angles, CA, 2007
