On Thursday, December 2, at 7 pm MDT ecoArt China curator Lisa Claypool will be in conversation with the cut paper artist Bovey Lee about her magical and fragile artworks that nonetheless embody the harsh realities of environmental crises and immigration. They will discuss what it means to be a contemporary artist working in the medium of cut paper, the stories she tells through it about departure and arrival, and her feminist commitment to exploring ways of seeing nature and Chinese culture.   

About Bovey Lee 李寶怡
Bovey Lee did most of her growing up in Hong Kong, before teaching oil painting in the States. She began to focus on the age-old art of cut paper around the time she moved to Los Angeles, where she currently resides and works. Her artwork often focuses on the tenacious rootedness of nature in urban built landscapes. It has been collected by the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology, BNY Mellon Corporate Art Collection, The Chinese University of Hong Kong Museum of Art, Fidelity Corporate Art Collection, Hong Kong Museum of Art, and the Pacific Asia Museum, among others.
