The Truman State University Art Department is pleased to welcome Prof. Lily Martina Lee as a new faculty member in the areas of Fibers, Sculpture, and three-dimensional art for the 2013-2014 academic year.
Lee, who comes originally from Washington state, received an MFA in Studio Art (Sculpture) from the University of Oregon in Eugene in 2012 and a BFA in Fibers and BA in American Indian Studies with a minor in Anthropology from the University of Washington in Seattle.
Her work involves a wide variety of techniques, including welding, grinding, sanding, stitching and beading, and she uses the resultant art to explore the relationship between identity, place, and material culture.
She has exhibited nationally and internationally at venues including Center on Contemporary Art in (Seattle), First Street Gallery (New York, NY), Modern Eden Gallery (San Francisco), and Scythia Fibre Art (Kherson, Ukraine).
