Daniel Lee/ RETURN TO THE SEA
Taitung Art Museum
2019.6.15-8.4 Opening 2019.6.15 Sat 3:00pm
Born in China and educated in Taiwan, Lee received training in painting and drawing. After graduated from the Philadelphia College of Art, Lee moved to New York and established himself as a successful photographer in one of the most competitive city in the world. However this does not bring satisfaction to his heart. There is an artistic calling inside Lee that needed to be answered to. In this exhibition, we like to trace back Lee’s journey of artist formation. It begins with his latest piece N.E.X.T 2016 where Lee looks to the future in hypothesis by a biologic study into the condition of human being. There is a genuine sense of self-evolution in the artist’s creative route. In fact, the constant interests in evolution and transformation of human existence is evident throughout his works. Lee as a savvy creator of image with dexterous skill in modern technology is remarkable and astonishing. Though the imagery he tries to convey is amusing, shocking and at times disturbing, yet they resonate with belief and doubts we all shared as a human being.
