Introducing Mie Yim and Deb Lawrence:
Mie Yim was born in South Korea in 1963. She grew up in Hawaii, earned a B.F.A. from the Philadelphia College of Art, and spent a year at the Tyler School of Art’s program in Rome. Her work has been displayed in numerous international exhibitions, including solo shows at Lehmann Maupin Gallery and Michael Steinberg Fine Arts in New York as well as the Galleria in Arco in Turin, Italy. She was included in “Selections” at the Drawing Center, and her work has been shown in group exhibitions at the ATM Gallery, Feature, Inc. and the Ise Cultural Foundation in New York, as well as Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas and The Weatherspoon Art Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina. She has been selected for the AIM program at The Bronx Museum of the Arts and the Jurors Award at N.Y.U. Gallery. Her work has been collected at such places as the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City and the Chambers Hotel in New York City and published on the back cover of a textbook called “Social Text” by Duke University. Her writing has been included in “THIS,” a Collection of artists’ writings edited by Susan Jennings. She is the author of a book called “A.B.C. of S.E.X.” and a recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts Painting Fellowship. She lives and works in New York City.
Deb Lawrence was born in the United States and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She received her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan, her Ph.D. from CWRU, and then embarked on a private, intensive course of art school study with Gerald Vandevier, professor emeritus of drawing and painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Her primary studio is located in the outskirts of Philadelphia, but she also maintains an active presence in New York and Cleveland. Deb Lawrence works with antique, homespun linen that was handwoven by women in the 19th century. Her highly abstract work is distinguished by its unique materiality, process, and conceptual intention. Her work simultaneously comments on three important movements in American arts: the long tradition of arts and crafts, feminist artists’ appropriation of these traditionally “female” crafts for their work and, of course, the grid as an underlying basis for abstraction. Lawrence views her pieces as psychologically infused “security blankets,” in which she conveys women’s internal struggle to feel comfortable in their own skin while simultaneously struggling to be heard and valued in contemporary society.
