Modern Art is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of works by Paul Lee. On My Way To You Now is the artist’s fourth solo exhibition with the gallery and includes an extensive range of works, made over the past decade and up to the present, that expand on the specific language he has continued to develop across the arc of his oeuvre.

Using a mixture of constructed wooden forms, stretched canvases and found objects such as soda cans, tambourines, light bulbs, washcloths and bath towels — Lee’s works subvert ways of portraying human physical interaction. The various elements are altered, reformulated and combined to make sculptures referencing intimate exchanges and personal affections, building upon indirect representations of certain collective histories and hidden personal narratives.

The exhibition coincides with the release of a new monograph on Paul Lee’s work designed and published by Karma.

Paul Lee was born in London in 1974, and lives and works in New York City.
