Jim Lee


Artist Jim Lee infuses his works with a unique humor that is presented as an abstract solution existing cleverly between sculpture and painting. Lee pays close attention to the formal elements of texture, color and form. While many of his works seem to be deeply rooted in Modernism, Lee actually draws much of his inspiration from industrial and consumer goods, often using related materials in the work in unsuspecting ways. The artist regularly challenges his seemingly aesthetic approach through the use of art historical references, specific titles and recycled materials. Lee received his MFA from the University of Delaware and currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. The artist has completed several shows national and internationals exhibitions with CRG Gallery and Freight

+ Volume both in NYC, Larry Becker Contemporary in Pennsylvania and Galerie Markus Winter in Berlin. Lee currently teaches at Hofstra University and Queens College in NYC.
