About Joo Lee

Joo Lee Kang is a Boston based artist who earned a BFA from Duksung Women’s University, in Seoul and an MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Joo Lee explains the work by saying, “By drawing mutated animals and plants, I question nature’s place in the modern context. What is nature? What is natural? The subjects that I portray in my drawings reflect the ambiguity of such definitions. They show how I feel at loss to describe what is natural in our present day. Cross-breeding, genetic engineering, and so on; the ways in which humans can control and reconfigure the natural process become more abundant as technology advances. Should the results of such human-developed processes be construed as a part of nature, or should nature exist independently of human progress?”
