Ceramicist Jennie Jieun Lee’s first hardcover publication, Rainbow 1 Hour Photo documents several years of the artist’s work divided into four distinct sections: Vessels & Larger Works, Busts & Pedestals, Paintings, and Masks. The diversity Lee brings when navigating ceramic art is highlighted in four texts addressing her practice as well as her complex and inspiring personal history.
The title alludes to the photo business run by her parents when Lee was a child. A 12-page facsimile insert of the photo books supplied by the business includes photos of Lee as a child and adolescent growing up in New Jersey and New York City.
