Adam Lee works from his studio in the hills of the Macedon Ranges, Australia, and he works mostly with traditional painting and drawing materials. His work references a wide range of sources including historical and colonial photography, biblical narratives, natural history and contemporary music, film and literature to investigate aspects of the human condition in relation to ideas of temporal and supernatural worlds.
Lee’s This Earthen Tent exhibition at Beers London presents a new series of work in which he continues to explore pilgrimage and the experience of lamentation as a metaphor for the experience of painting.
Themes of family, shelter, and a sense of protection tend to represent the works, evoking a sense of ethereality or nostalgia, but ultimately reflecting his fascination with our longing for home, however evasive or mysterious that may appear.
As viewers, we quickly become aware of Lee’s interest in archaic figures and a tendency toward folkloric and fantastical imagery. From the idyllic to the pastoral, his paintings include shrine and tabernacles, funerary scenes or pilgrimage groups, often circulating around the hermit as a metaphoric figure or unknowing protagonist.
Lee’s works are often accompanied by a sense of regeneration. It seems time converges; the past, future and present become one, and narratives become complex and uncertain.
