IL LEE: New Work at Art Projects International
One major implication of this almost infinitely stretchable line is that Lee's art is composed by long durations rather than in short, discontinuous passages. This durational aspect of Lee's process is dramatically different from how most paintings are created, even those that seem to fuse into unified lines, shapes or fields. The making of his work is like a kind of dance, and what we view are the accumulated traces of orchestrated and intuitive movements; this is not graphic art but choreographic art.
– Raphael Rubinstein, from the exhibition catalogue

POURAN JINCHI at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston
Museum of Fine Arts Boston
Iranian-born artist Pouran Jinchi, in her lovely "Prayer Stones 2," refers back to the Abbasid ceramics crafted in her region in the ninth century. She has painted clay tablets used by Shiite Muslims to rest their foreheads on during prayer. The blue and white lacquer patterns, floral designs, and invocations in Farsi on these small pieces make them gemlike. Jinchi has placed them flat in a concise mandala design, which prompts meditation.
