The De Pree Gallery is pleased to announce our next exhibition by Hope alumni artist Jim Lee, “ALL MY GHOSTS”. Lee will deliver an artist’s talk on Thursday, January 20 at 7pm in Cook Auditorium in the De Pree Art Center, with the gallery opening of his exhibition immediately following. Admission is free. "ALL MY GHOSTS" will run from January 20 until February 18, 2022.
Jim Lee's work tends to be rough cut and a little gritty, each a record of test-drives and experiments against modernist principles. Fluctuating between linear abstractions and plays on minimalism, Lee’s style challenges the priority traditionally placed on the pictorial surface alone, while toying with notions of painting as object and painting as experimentation. Exposing the framework that lies beneath a canvas, or cobbling materials in a patchwork of addition, Lee investigates and maintains a tenuous, yet playful, dialogue between completion and destruction throughout his practice.
Jim Lee (b. 1970, Berrien Springs, MI) received his MFA from the University of Delaware in 1996.
