Kamarin Lee
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick



ARTIST STATEMENT: Kamarin Lee's work recalls the aggressive tonalities of New York City in their historical and anecdotal representations. It is an exploration of identity, subculture, and experience in his childhood neighborhood of East New York, Brooklyn. The artist employs salvaged objects, secondary advertising and expressionistic brushwork to embrace power as an institutional force. In this way, compositional and surface elements wrestle with one other on the surface plane for supremacy, remarking Foucault's philosophy on how one's subjectivity and identity moves through space. Pedestrian experiences and environmental aesthetics such as graffiti and abandoned space are evoked, allowing the paintings to draw on an allegory of New York City life then and now.
