"Lee creates visualizations of his mental compulsions. He describes his art as a “cartography of his psychopathology,” a literal map of the workings of his mind. Looking at one of his pieces, you can sense a terrain of sorts and are taken on a visual tour that begins with an intensely focused and ordered accumulation of color and pattern that lightens, trails off, and turns into something else entirely.
