New paintings by Belinda Lee
April 17th - May 2nd
opening reception Friday April 17 from 6-10pm
open to the public

My aim is to show people in their specific situational context amidst the ever changing and often challenging cultural forces that frame our world. I strive to record and interpret the multiple layers of environmental and circumstantial factors that manifest in the individual, as well as inferring the way the individual may view themselves. I see myself as a visual anthropologist collecting and describing data that details a difficult, changing and complicated world. I am driven to portray people that I perceive as on the edge or in a transitional state. These representations may be subtle or extreme and may reflect class, generational, economic or personal shifts. My subjects become archetypes that represent who we are both collectively and individually as people. In these paintings I hope to carry forward the tradition of portraiture in a viable and meaningful way.
