Steve Turner is pleased to present Woven Selves, a solo exhibition for Montreal-based Jessica Wee which features recent paintings that explore the interconnectedness of experience, memory and cultural influence. Born in the United States to Korean parents, Wee grew up in France and Canada, with a fluid sense of identity that she describes as being in between cultures. She utilizes the framework of classical still life painting to portray Asian female subjects with strength and autonomy. Her unconventional juxtapositions, dream-like and sensitively painted in oil, reflect her ongoing effort to understand Korean-ness.
