Dabin Lee works around social issues which she believes need to be considered more these days. Her bright, humorous and colorful pieces are based on her contemplative drawings that portray her everyday reality. In every piece a message is given to the viewer or participant by showing a story behind the work. A kind of ‘double entendre’ which makes people realize and think about their own perception and opinion on the subject. Lee uses a technique called ‘tufting’. Fine, colorful metal wires which are processed in a manner similar to carpet knotting, creating a structure similar to fur. At first glance, the jewellery pieces seem colorful and cheerful, but if you take a closer look and touch the cold metal, you are reminded that the reality looks very different.
