    Question: Acts of process seem paramount in your earlier work but not in the modernist etymology of word, not by revealing the making of the thing but rather reacting to it, altering the thing’s physical state by responding to its raison d’être. Through a kind of performance, you reveal the “thing’s” function, by using it […]

    QUESTION: Lately you have begun using insulating foam as a ground for paintings.  These surfaces bloom outward, collapse inward, leave gaping holes, boil over the frame.  In addition, often you include shelves or other three- dimensional elements in your work.   At what point–if any–does your work become sculpture, or, to put it another way, when […]

    Lee Boroson

    Saturday, November 21, 2015

    Lee Boroson’s work presents a nuanced take on the idea of nature. For the artist, “landscape” is positioned between man-made cultural constructs and wilderness. To achieve this, Boroson creates large-scale immersive installations, which emulate “natural” experiences for his viewers, based on the most ineffable elemental forces in nature — from air, fog, and smoke, to […]
