Sun-ho Lee is a Korean interdisciplinary artist based in Chicago who redefines her identity through personal branding. Lee collages and combines food packaging with historical objects and techniques such as Wedgewood pottery, Depression-Era quilting, and crochet. Through hand-made production of textile works, she forcibly places herself within capitalism and its social hierarchies in order to subvert them. She is fascinated by how people’s lives are mass-produced, the contradictions of this repetitive lifestyle, and the unpredictability of her own future. She has a background in textile art, product design, and experience in sculpture. Lee’s works were awarded second prize from the Sunhwa High School, Korea, in 2014, and she received the Merit scholarship through the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from 2018 to 2022, where she completed her BFA degree. Lee also has been selected as a semi-finalist for 2023 AQS QuiltWeek® – Grand Rapids, Michigan held September 13-16, 2023, at DeVos Place Convention Center. She is currently practicing visual art as a Gallery & Brand Assistant, sustaining her career and studio practice. Her work will be included in an upcoming show, “Inspiration-2023,” in Canada and a Duo show in Chicago, “Contemporary Nostalgia.”
