The works in this exhibition range from exquisite polychromatic small wall-mounted pieces such as Other Voices, 1993, to her large-scale sculptures, Hebrides, 2003, which will be installed in the courtyard of IMMA. Materials are explored through the painterly use of hand-patinated bronzes as in the imposing, Sybilla, 2000, or through the elegant use of raku-fired ceramic in the Cubic series. Although Lee’s work has always been purely abstract in form, she states that things, “like the stone circles in Ireland, African masks, and American-Indian pictographs are all to varying degrees abstract to us, simply because we don’t fully know their original significance; and yet, they are potent as art objects”.
The exhibition is curated by Enrique Juncosa, Director, IMMA. This is a touring exhibition and will travel to Musée d’Art Moderne, Saint Etienne, France.
A catalogue, with essays by Enrique Juncosa and Caoimhin Mac Giolla Leith, curator and critic, accompanies the exhibition (price €42.00).
