By drawing mutated animals and plants, Joo Lee Kang questions nature’s place in the modern context: what is nature, what is natural? The subjects she portrays challenge our definitions, and show the difficulty of describing what is natural in our present day. Cross-breeding, genetic engineering—the ways humans can control and reconfigure the natural process—become more commonplace 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?
Joo Lee Kang received her BFA in Painting from Duksung Women’s University, Republic of Korea, and her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University. She is the recipient of numerous awards and fellowships, and her artwork has been featured in various publications including Hi-Fructose Magazine, ARTnews, New American Paintings, and Artscope. She is an instructor at Seoul Digital University, Republic of Korea.
