About

For this series, Color Forms, Deanna Lee created installations in a flat-file cabinet at ODETTA, combining colored paper, plastic gels, colored LEDs, and drawings made from her rubbings of walls in a house on Governors Island, NYC and from a house on Eagle Street. Deanna Lee’s work—in the form of paintings, drawings, site-specific installations, and public artworks—stems from patterns and traces of growth and transformation in the natural world and the built environment. Her works often feature masses of lines that evoke various influences: organic structures like plants, hair, muscles, and fungi; natural systems such as waves and wind currents; geological strata; topographical maps; and sound. These linear networks are often based on tracings and rubbings of plywood, cracking plaster, and corroding metal---hand-drawn records of physical effects of nature and structural anomalies in her immediate surroundings. She thinks of these marks as the calligraphic signatures of quotidian natural effects and as interpretations of the material evidence of time. For the exhibition at ODETTA, Lee worked as the artist-in-residence for 12 days at the gallery, creating site-specific drawing installations that she developed from features and colors of the gallery, such as rubbings of surface textures and forms of security equipment. Deanna Lee was born in Putnam County, New York, to parents from China and Taiwan, and raised in suburban Boston. She grew up spending time in her mother’s biology lab and taking classical-music lessons on several instruments for 14 years. Comprising drawings, paintings, site-specific installations, and public artworks, her work interprets everyday traces of transformation in natural systems and the built environment. Numerous venues have shown her work, including Robert Henry Contemporary, Wave Hill, The Drawing Center, and Trestle Projects. Her public artworks include a mural on jersey barriers for the NYC DOT and a window installation in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Her honors include awards from: Pollock-Krasner Foundation, Asia Society, National Academy, Millay Colony, Saltonstall Foundation. She was an expeditionary artist with The Clipperton Project, in Mexico, and was recently a resident artist on Governors Island with Works on Water and Underwater New York. She lives and works in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
