Jacqueline Rush Lee is a sculptor from Northern Ireland who lives and works in Hawaii. Jacqueline has transformed books into a wide range of unique sculptural forms for eighteen years. By using books and paper as a canvas or building block, she transforms their formal and conceptual arrangement through a variety of practices in which the physicality, and thus the context of the materials have been altered.
Selected group museum shows include Odd Volumes: Book Art from the Allan Chasanoff Collection at the Yale Art Gallery, Boundless:The Book Transformed in Contemporary Art at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum, The Book Borrowers: Contemporary Artists Transforming the Book at the Bellevue Arts Museum, and Unhinged: Book Art on the Cutting Edge at the Whatcom Museum. Jacqueline’s work is in private and public collections that include the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts and the Allan Chasanoff Book Art Collection, Yale.
