Kasia Kay Art Projects gallery announces its first solo exhibition for Rim Lee titled Retrospective.
The artist’s work finds primary source material within the realms of performance and photography while her oeuvre focuses on the intensity of human emotions. The exhibition presents Lee’s self-portraits - large oils on canvas and photographs - in which she references certain works of Max Ernst.

She has also been nominated in 2010 for the Perrier Jouet Award. Rim Lee participated in The Body, a 2-person exhibition with Claudia Hart at Kasia Kay’s in 2010. The Gallery also featured her work at international art fairs, Art Chicago 2010 and 2011 and scope Miami 2011 last December.
