LAWRENCE LEE

Born in Texas in 1978, Lawrence Lee has been drawing since the age of two. After
studying painting at the Texas A&M School of Commerce, he received his BFA in
2002 and will begin working towards his masters this Fall. At his most recent show
at the Barry Whistler Gallery in Dallas, nearly all of Lee’s pieces sold in only one
day.

Lee sees his creative artistry as an expression of inner thoughts, personal
yearnings, and the pains and joys present in everyday life. He presents his work
in a conceptual manner, relying heavily on vivid visual imagery. His world of talking
creatures and plants, characterized by their representation of the strangeness and
randomness of life, allows Lee and the viewer to search for an ultimate “purpose.”
Details remain a focal point for Lee as he tends to dig deep into the drawing
concentrating on an objects inner essence, believing that there is so much to be
seen in even the smallest parts of a ‘thing.’ His ability to pull from personal
experience reflects an uncanny creativity within his body of work.
