Steve Lee

My work investigates how individual realities are formed. I am fascinated in concepts and development of self that are based on identification with environment, traditions and superstitions while often straddling cultural boundaries. I like to question and challenge preconceptions that can reshape our sense of identity and culture.

The pieces I create appropriate elements of form, decoration, color, image and material that are distinct from specific cultures or periods in history. The viewer is left to construct the context and narrative of the object based on his or her own perspective and experience.

I see these as reminders of the past, but also as objects that I have become emotionally invested in discovering my own sense of place. I strive to create work that has the ability to transgress boundaries of all types—geographic, cultural, visual, and functional, to allow a spilling out of meanings as diverse as the experiences that can inform them.
