Jiyong Lee is an artist from Carbondale, Illinois. He has always been fascinated with cells and cell division, which gave him inspiration to create colorful geometric glass sculptures.
The simplicity and intricacy of his compositions represent the contradictory relationship between clarity and complexity found within life.
“The Segmentation series is subtle and quiet yet structurally complex. I transform solid glass using cutting, lamination, carving, and surface refining processes to make art that is both beautiful and deeply invested with meaning.”
