Art Statements Gallery is delighted to present the solo exhibition of Hong Kong artist Patrick Lee. His second exhibition with the gallery and it includes a selection of new works from his latest series --- A Return to Silence.
Patrick Lee (born 1949), as a co-founder of the Para-Site Art Space, is one of most influential and respected figures in Hong Kong's contemporary art scene for the past decade. Lee has exhibited extensively in Hong Kong and has held several successful exhibitions abroad since 1989.
In his latest series, A Return to Silence, Lee presents a collection of emotionally charged and stunning photographs that can be viewed and interpreted as a spiritual continuation and evolution from his earlier series (2000's Night Vigil and 2004's Look!). Primarily focusing on photography as the media of his artistic output, the camera acts instrumentally as a witness as well as a tool for self contemplation and reflection in his everlasting quest for internal truth.
In A Return to Silence, Lee has not only captured his most intimate thoughts and emotional states in these captivating and otherworldly images, he has also exposed his soul visually, without any reservation, in order for us to experience and see complex emotions through a set of often bewildered eyes.
