Jplus Gallery is pleased to present “Pour Painting”, a duo exhibition featuring the works of LeRone Wilson and YunJung Lee. The show will open on Thursday, February 2nd and continue through February 12th, 2017. Utilizing their own handwork and signature media for narrating intriguing stories and personal experiences, Wilson and Lee both succeed in creating emotionally charged imageries that actively communicate with the viewers.
LeRone Wilson, known as a sculpted Encaustic Painter, shows a series of wall-mounted relief sculptures. Through his distinctive material and technique, Wilson shows an ever-changing world where the knowledge is forgotten and misappropriated, pursuing spiritual and cultural identity. With the repetitive and experimental processes of using a mixture of beeswax, he achieves the dynamism of aesthetic form.
Korean-born female artist, YunJung Lee’s work presents the emotion locked in her conscious and unconscientious memories through her own colors with mixed media and strong brush strokes. By revealing her imprinted inside through visual language, she recreates moody and mystical desires for transcendence and the infinite.
New York based artist, LeRone Wilson has participated in the Neo-Harlem Renaissance. His work has been shown in Museum of Biblical Art, Philips de Pury Auction House, and prominent international art fairs. He was the winner of the 2011 Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series at Scope Miami, a nominee for the Louis Tiffany Biennial Award and winner of Best In Show at the 19th Carroll Harris Simms National Black Art Exhibition. His works are in several important private collections and has been featured in publications, including Architectural Digest, The Wall Street Journal and the Associated Press, among many others.
YunJung Lee has numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Korea, Japan, and New York. Lee has participated in prominent international art fairs such as LA Art Show, Affordable Art Fair in Battersea and Seoul in 2016. She was awarded by the Osaka Contemporary Art Competition, Now Chinese Contemporary Art Competition, and the second place of the Painting Competition organized by the Watercolor Association of Korea.
