David Shelton Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of works by Paul Lee, titled “In My Room”.
Using combinations of constructed wooden forms, stretcher bars, canvas, panes of glass, and tambourines, Lee’s new body of works span painting, collage, and sculpture. His compositions are altered, reformulated, and repeated in ways that are influenced by personal and physical human interactions through memory and perspective. Objects within these configurations reference the human body with “skins” that are at times covered in color and at others left exposed, and create a play between physical and pictorial spaces where corners meet in pictures, and pictures meet through the objects.
Paul Lee was born in London in 1974, and lives and works in Brooklyn. He has had recent solo exhibitions at Stuart Shave/Modern Art, London, UK (2018); Michael Lett, Auckland, NZ (2017); Jeffrey Stark, New York, NY (2016); Maccarone, Los Angeles, CA (2016); and Untilthen gallery, Paris, France (2015). His work has been included in group exhibitions including at Adrian Rosenfeld Gallery, San Francisco, CA (2018); Jessica Silverman Gallery, San Francisco, CA (2017); Touchpiece, Hannah Hoffman Gallery, Los Angeles, CA (2017); FraenkelLAB, curated by John Waters, San Francisco, CA (2016); Karma at Gladstone Gallery, Brussels, BE (2015); The Morgan Library and Museum, New York, NY (2015); and the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, TX (2013). He was an Artist in Residence at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa in 2007.
