Idea Code 18132

Driven by an interest in the idea of human desire for a divine world, Adam Lee brings a mystical element to his paintings. The world building which he has undertaken over much of his artistic oeuvre seems to have perpetuated its own fictionalised reality. Lee thinks of the figures he depicts as symbols within the paintings, in the sense that they could represent many different things. Drawing on both hermitic figures in art history and literary figures, he explores broader themes like lamentation, transfiguration, and the experience of illumination. Featuring recent watercolours and oil paintings by Lee, the book also includes a conversation with the artist and a text by Jack Willet.
