Vo­tive

Adam Lee Perime­ter Edi­tions

Art Almanac - - Art In Australia -

Adam Lee presents ‘Vo­tive’ – as an ex­pres­sion and evo­ca­tion of faith – his first ma­jor art pub­li­ca­tion show­cas­ing works from three ex­hi­bi­tions in Toronto, Mel­bourne and London. From the deep and lu­mi­nous blues in Trans­fig­u­ra­tion (2016) veil­ing the cover to the vi­brant art­works dis­played through­out, the book of­fers a vis­ual jour­ney ex­plor­ing faith, spir­i­tu­al­ity and hope. Drawn from per­sonal re­la­tion­ships and his­tor­i­cal, mytho­log­i­cal and lit­er­ary ref­er­ences, Lee’s paint­ings cross the bound­aries from the seem­ingly fa­mil­iar to new and oth­er­worldly ex­is­tence.

Ac­com­pa­nied by Dan Rule’s in­tro­duc­tion, Jack Wil­let’s es­say and a con­ver­sa­tion be­tween the artist and Kim Dor­land, ‘Vo­tive’ de­liv­ers an in­sight­ful un­der­stand­ing of Lee’s in­spi­ra­tions, ap­proach and pro­cesses of his painterly prac­tice.
