2. Aedan Lee

            Aedan Lee’s practice bridges painting, drawing and sculpture, using elements of abstraction in a refined colour palette. Working predominantly with repurposed industrial supplies such as meshes, tread plate and perforated steel, Lee renders geometric patterned surfaces onto his materials to create hybrid experimental forms which are greatly informed by the utilitarian aesthetics of public space. Seeking truth in the apparent bedlam of modernity, Lee’s works fracture, dissect and restructure the man-made environment to create a new observational lens. In this installation presented at The Cube, added kinetic elements such as a hanging rotary platform and laser lights bathe the forms in visual chaos culminating in a full-bodied confrontation with several visual phenomena begging the question, “Can there be order in chaos?”
