  J.J. Lee: Dolls
Jan. 7-31
Reception: Jan. 10, 6-9 PM

J. J. Lee is a local artist who is currently producing a series entitled Dolls. The inspiration for these works came when he spotted a flattened, twisted, aluminum can in the road that resembled a woman's evening gown. After acquiring a collection, he began matching them as they were found (unwashed and unaltered in any way) with images of fashion models from Harper's Bazaar magazine. Once the right image is discovered, several photos are taken in various positions to get the perfect look. The page containing the image is dry mounted, after which the can is adhered on top.

The crux of these works is the juxtaposition of refuse and beauty. It invites discussion of concepts including--but not limited to--the mass marketing, consumption, and recycling of beauty as relating to fashion. However, the manner in which they are presented perhaps suggests a less obvious concept: transformation and identity. Refuse is transformed into something valued and permanent. That is, the cans are upcycled into garments and accessories in the style of Haute Couture while the once disposable paper dolls become permanent. They then are encased in handcrafted shadow box frames, behind museum glass, sealing them in perpetuity, thus recasting each one as something inimitable with a unique story. It is this story, then, that is open to interpretation by the viewer.

Layaway Plan for Artwork Purchase


If you are interested in purchasing one of our available artworks, but are not in a hurry and would like to make payments overtime, we offer a wonderful layaway program.

First, staff will clear the layaway sale with the artist. A down payment of 30% of the total purchase price will enable clients to secure an item. Patrons can make payments with cash, check, or credit card for up to 90 days. After the deposit is paid, patrons can make equal payments, or pay off in full, during this 90 day time period. A layaway contract will help you outline a payment schedule that works for you and the Gallery. There is no charge for the Layaway Plan. The down payment is not returnable once it is paid. Any other payments that are made on the artwork cannot be returned if the buyer decides not to purchase the artwork.

This Layaway Plan is available, subject to approval by staff and Artist, for any piece that is $250 retail and over and can be safely stored.  All purchases must include sales tax (8.25%).

Once the balance is paid in full, you will be notified to pick up the artwork.

The Pence Gallery accepts the following methods of payment:

– All major credit and debit cards, including

– Cash, and personal checks with identification
