Things are taking shape. Of course, finishing the boat is just the beginning. Once completed I’ll then ruin it, set it in the painting, and then begin salvaging/repairing it.
- Following the recent announcement and new collaboration with Profiles, Bicycle Fine Art is pleased to introduce contemporary artworks to Profiles’ NYDC showroom. Profiles has served the design community for over 35 years, and for the first time, fine art is being offered. This partnership showcases the curatorial talents of Bicycle Fine Art, who features stellar and emerging artists and whose work complements the furniture lines by the trade’s most preeminent designers. More information and guest registration can be found at http://www.nydc.com/wnwn. This free event will be taking place today, September 14th, at 200LEX, and open from 1:00 to 9:00PM.
We are honored for the opportunity to curate and present this dialogue between Eric Lee’s ‘Verehrung’ and Robert Marinelli’s refined and sophisticated furniture line. Robert Marinelli’s timeless vision creates an intimate and warm space which invites one to experience Eric Lee’s prolific narrative across five panels. The common theme of subdivision and similar color palettes are reflected in both Robert Marinelli’s furniture and Eric Lee’s painting, creating a comprehensive aesthetic that marries the design elements of the space.
Oil, ignited gunpowder, ash, paper on five hardboard panels
Display Dimensions: 48 x 114 in.

Here’s a quick Instagram tour of a 2’x2′ painting on panel in progress. I imagine this will take much of the winter to complete:
I had an amazing time with UWEC art students this morning. I loved every minute of it. I pulled no punches and was very straight with them about my experiences and what awaits them “out there” in the art world. I did my very best to encourage and inspire them, and to embolden them about their importance and worth. I care a lot for students and I wish them the very best.
My alma mater asked that I be a part of their current show, Tributaries: A Centennial Celebration of Art & Design Alumni now hanging in the Foster Gallery, UWEC through October 26.
I’ll post video updates on the development of the third and final painting of this series. Have a look:
