Material World

September 10 – October 28, 2020

Leeah Joo

Material World artist Leeah Joo came to the United States from Seoul when she was 10 years old. Raised in Indiana by artist parents, she studied art history and painting at Indiana University and received her MFA in painting at the Yale School of Art. Influenced by the technical precision of Northern Renaissance artists, her recent work has embraced trompe l’oeil art and its desire to create the illusion of real objects. Join Joo in her studio as she discusses the inspiration and technique behind her current Parrhasius series, in which drapery is used to both “conceal and reveal” like a curtain on a stage.
