Lee graduated from Chester University with a first in fine art in 2008 having also been awarded the University's fine art prize. Since then Lee has made quite an impact on the art world with sell-out exhibitions across the country.
Lee's inspiration comes from train journeys through the countryside. The scenary flicking by leaving indelible images that Lee reproduces in oils, varnishes and acrylics which are spread around the raw canvas creating sweeping skies. Bold layers are scraped back and balanced against the dramatic use of paint revealing hidden chinks of colour. The basic composition evolves spontaneously through heavy and joyful mark-making. Scrapers and trowels are used to create delightfully gestural and organic shapes. A mixture of instinctive, deliberate and accidental marks merge the layers together. Areas are energetically reworked or erased until the image reaches a desired beauty.
Each piece is painted solely from memory to create images that are abstracted and expressional more than representational.
We are delighted to introduce a talented young artist, with a very bright future.
