The sense of haptic memory is overwhelmingly in every aspect of Lee’s sculptures. Here soft drink cans and bath towelling evoke a lingering evidence of intimacy: saliva on lip, damp scent of sweat; while the translucent and swollen light bulbs suggest something that was once ‘turned on’. Awkwardly bound together by the frayed remnants of a shoe string, Lee’s assemblage conveys the fragility and pathos of lost love and its detritus in this precariously balanced composition.
