Reception for Jennifer Lee: New Work

leave a comment »

On Saturday, July 14th, we celebrated Jennifer Lee’s fourth solo exhibition at the gallery with an opening reception. I was happy to welcome Jennifer and her family back to Los Angeles – they had made the long trip from London for the occasion.

We were joined at the reception by the British Consul-General, Dame Barbara Hay, who had never seen Jennifer’s work but was immediately taken by it. Dame Hay, along with Jennifer’s other fans and collectors were happy to have the opportunity to hear from Jennifer directly about her artistic process.

For this show, Jennifer had requested two large, egg-shaped plinths on which she could arrange her vessels in small groups. I feel that this enhances her work, as it creates beautiful negative spaces between the pieces, allowing them to speak softly to one another. Her work begs to be examined from every direction, and the plinths allowed the crowd on opening night to spend time shifting their perspectives and discovering the subtle details that characterize Jennifer’s style.

The exhibition Jennifer Lee: New Work will run through August 11th, and I hope that some of you will get a chance to come by and see it for yourself!
