Chinese has strong affections towards the natural landscape. The Master (Confucius) said, “The wise delight in water; the virtuous delight in hills.” Surrounded by the natural landscape, the literati believed that one’s philosophies could be inspired to purify his soul. Different from the traditional literati, instead of purely paint or write to present the essence of nature, Lee created a 3-dimensional sculptural painting, which helps illustrating Lee’s thoughts over the two topics, “City” and “Landscape”. At the same time, Lee is inviting the visitors to slow down their pace from the hustle and bustle, and to travel and enjoy with him, so as to contemplate what we have grown in our own city.
safety into consideration, I can still retain the messages that I would like to convey through my works. As a result, when developing public artworks, I spend a lot of time thinking about this issue.
