DOUBLEVIEW sculptor Jina Lee will explore goals, dreams and aspirations in her new solo exhibition Dreaming Stone.

Working mainly with marble, granite and sandstone from around the world, Ms Lee said she learnt her craft in home country South Korea and honed her skills when she moved to Australia.

“The work I will be displaying will be a range of sculptures that I have completed over the past 10 years,” she said.

“I often draw inspiration from nature, and apply those ideas into my sculptures.

“All of my sculptures are created using a different and unique stone; each block of stone has its own characteristics and story.”

Ms Lee said she hoped the public would find their own meaning in her work.

“I want my work to reflect the idea of ‘possibilities’ and ideas of ‘hope’ that grow and flourish within us,” she said.

“I carve simplified organic shapes in various stones and I believe it is interesting to see and feel how stones transform into soft shapes.

“People can have a chance to see a variety colours, types and origins of stones in one place.”

Dreaming Stone opens on October 29 and runs until November 12 at Greg James Sculpture gallery J shed, Bathers Beach art precinct, Fremantle.
