In a Day Journey 

Solo Exhibition of Diane Lee


Exhibition Dates: Fri, March 15th –  Sun, April 28th 2024

OH Art Foundation is pleased to celebrate Women’s History Month with Diane Lee: In a Day/Journey, a solo exhibition featuring Korean-American fiber artist Diane Lee’s most recent body of work. The exhibition will be on view from March 15th to April 28th with an opening reception on Friday, March 15th from 7-10pm. We invite all to join us for the opening, which will take place in OH Art Foundation’s gallery space on the 3rd floor of Zhou B Art Center.

Needle and thread in hand, Lee meticulously weaves visions that tread the line between the physical and intangible. Each piece is both a record of the artist’s journey and a living portal itself; as the viewer draws closer, the beauty of the details reveal themselves: her marks are made from countless stitches, emerging from swaths of white to form dreamlike silhouettes and lush fields. Her laborious process is in part informed by a deep appreciation for the expansive—and often undervalued—history of fiber itself. Paying homage to the storytellers who came before her, Lee’s practice is generational in nature, as is evident in pieces that incorporate old photographs like Umma. But the vignettes of Lee’s work not only document the past. It also represents things yet to come—absence, after all, is not merely empty space to a needle; it sometimes exists as a marker of what has not yet been sewn. In Diane Lee: In a Day/Journey, thread tethers and transforms that which unspools itself from memory: time. With each stitch, the viewer falls into tandem with Lee’s footsteps, asking the question: what has led us here, and where will we go next?
