Born in Texas in 1950, Catherine Lee’s works are a hybrid of painting, sculpture and installation, in which she juxtaposes the simplicity of a repeated form with a richness of materials, such as wax, bronze, glass and fibreglass. She first exhibited in New York at P.S.1 in 1980, and since then has participated in numerous exhibitions internationally. Lee has exhibited internationally from the 1980s. Her work is included in the collections of SFMOMA; MoMA, New York; Tate, London, and the Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh.
April to June 2005
In association with her solo show at IMMA in June 2005, Catherine Lee also participated on the Artists’ Work Programme for three months prior to the installation of her exhibition. Abstraction is the language of Lee’s work and this is achieved through colour, texture, scale and composition. Her work conjures up a diverse range of references from both past and future technologies. She works mainly in the medium of bronze. Website http://www.catherinelee.net/

Catherine Lee, Exhibition
From June to September 2005 a mini-retrospective of the work of the American sculptor Catherine Lee was shown at IMMA. It focused on the artist’s work from the past decade and explored the point at which her work began to deploy pure three-dimensional space through the powerful use of material, colour and form.
