Tara Stallworth Lee

slowly, please: cheoncheonhi hae juseyo

On Display at the TVMA May 14 – June 25, 2022

slowly, please: cheoncheonhi hae juseyo is an ongoing body of work composed of textile sculptures, collage memorials, and photographic portraits. Through hand-dying and slow-stitching, biographical explorations, concentrated gazing, and listening, the collection features a simple desire to cultivate a greater intimacy with the world.

Birmingham artist Tara Stallworth Lee makes photographs, paper, books, and collages. Expansion of human dignity and the significance of the natural world are important themes throughout all of her work.

Tara received her BS in Psychology and Minor in Art from Birmingham-Southern College. She teaches specialty art classes for The Smithsonian Associates summer camp program in Washington, D.C. and for Studio By The Tracks in Birmingham, a studio and gallery for adult artists with autism. She is the 2021/22 recipient of the Alabama State Council on the Arts Gay Burke Fellowship in Photographic Art. She is a resident artist at Ground Floor Contemporary.
