"Plodded Account" James Oscar Lee Solo Exhibition

Sat., Feb. 23, 12-4 p.m.
phone 313-649-7741

“Plodded Account” sounds like a Frasier episode title, but from the perspective of previous Red Bull Arts Detroit resident James Oscar Lee, the phrase encompasses memory timelines and is also the name of his latest solo exhibition. A Detroit-based painter and artist, Lee has come to be known for his abstract large-scale paintings that play with textural illusion, emotive layering, and “disrupted landscapes.” Lee does not shy away from color with “Plodded Account” which plays with pastel colors and jewel tones and is described as a broader narrative, as each piece in the series “cinematically interacts with one another.” Free
