Lee Marshall is a sampler, the world to him is an entropic archive made of fragments to be copied, pasted and reconnected while filtered through his own vision through which to construct a new universe. In his works we find soft gradients of colors, vector objects and figures that seem created with obsolete graphic software. Their vocation is to evoke digital landscapes and surreal atmospheres worthy of a contemporary Dalì.
Lee's creations all exist in the real world, you can touch them in the form of paintings, drawings and sculptures. Their three-dimensional physicality displays depths and reliefs on surfaces we're used to perceiving as flat canvases or screens.
Lee is immersed in the informational eco-system that regulates the contemporary world. But he rolls in it, aiming beyond the mere interconnections generated by various digital media which continuously repeat the same theme. Lee is instead interested in a further reflection on these samples of data, on the meta-data that describe us and our environment, in an organic relation.
