“Lee’s domestically-scaled artworks are contained, like individual sculptural paintings that could be transported anywhere. Although they often consist of the same foundational materials as her large-scale sculptures—stainless steel pipes and familiar, locally sourced objects—it feels as if the artworks are instruments contributing to a symphony, unlike the larger installations that command and change their surrounding paths.”
