Emerson Gallery—Eve Stockton: Origin Stories
Known for her large-scale woodcut prints, Stockton’s works are inspired by a close observation of nature and an eclectic interest in science. Printed in shifting color combinations, these works are shown together, often in repetition, creating an atmosphere that can subtly envelop the viewer.
Eve Stockton, originally from rural Ohio, currently lives and has her studio in Alexandria, Va. She was a practicing architect, with degrees from Princeton and Yale, until discovering woodcut printmaking. She is currently a full-time artist, and has shown her work in solo and group exhibitions extensively, including exhibits in New York, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Ireland, and Nova Scotia.
Replay and Reshuffle: Paintings by Kyujin Lee
Combining the spontaneity of surrealist automatism with refined illustrative skill, Kuyjin Lee draws on the world of fairy tale to compose paintings exploring dreams, identity and personal transformation. Employing a cast of characters which includes mermaids, Pinocchio and a figurative alter-ego, Lee mines symbolic connotations to create narrative works full of tension, danger and adventure, leading eventually to the acquisition of wisdom born from experience. Kyujin Lee was born in Seoul, Korea and currently resides in Washington, D.C. She received an M.A. degree from Colombia University’s Teachers College, and M.F.A. from the College of the City University of New York, and a B.A. from Sookmyung Women’s University in Seoul. Lee has shown her work locally and nationally in both solo and group exhibitions.
