Excerpt from essay by Dick Goody: There is something universal in the act of contemplating nature; there is something contextual too. For example, imagine walking down a path and homing in on a particularly attractive leaf; now, pick up the leaf and weigh its beauty. But also consider all the other things that come to mind. The work of Jae Won Lee focuses on the formalistic beauty of nature. All the other things that come to mind, which inform her work, she consigns obliquely away to be separately archived.
