Jane Lee challenges what qualifies as a painting by using unorthodox materials, tools, and processes in her art. In a recent series of work, Lee approximated the form of a painting but refused to use canvas; instead she presented skeins of monochromatic thread assembled into wall-mounted rectangles and spilled onto the floor. In other works, Lee reduces painting to the gesture of impasto layers stacked in sculptural formations, suggesting painting is merely the application of one color on top of another. “Creating paintings using my hands without relying on other tools is fun. It is easier to be in control and it also allows spontaneous interaction with the paint texture,” she has said. “It has this very naked feeling and it is able to create interesting yet unexpected markings on the canvas.”
