5th Atlanta Print Biennial 5th
The Atlanta Print Biennial is an international juried exhibition, open to all artists working in hand-pulled printmaking processes. Purchase awards and prizes will be given. The exhibit is organized by Atlanta Printmakers Studio and hosted by Kai Lin Art, a contemporary art gallery located in the vibrant Westside District of Midtown Atlanta, GA.
This year’s juror is Eun Lee. Lee was born in Seoul, Korea and has had many roles in academia and service. She was the program coordinator for the printmaking minor at SCAD in Savannah and served as the Conference Coordinator of SGC International, the largest printmaking organization in North America. Also during her tenure with SGCI, she has served as President, Vice President of External Affairs, Chair of the Nominations Committee, Chair of the Awards Committee and Student Representative. She has also served the prior SGEO organization as President and Vice President. Eun received her MFA from the University of Notre Dame and her BFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
As a conceptually driven artist, Eun is constantly exploring new marks and images. The work is most often a materialization of her personal diasporic cultural experiences as a continually evolving conscious being. Utilizing a combination of extreme and subtle visual language in order to preserve a controlled disclosure, Eun’s work reveals the unavoidable dichotomies of any and all situations. “I am interested in simultaneously portraying the controlled and uncontrolled, perceived good and bad, acceptable and unacceptable, balanced and unbalanced, and the philosophy that perfection must always be fluid.”
