Emergence featuring Catherine Lee at Blue Star Contemporary
September 4 - November 9, 2014
Catherine Lee will present her exhibition "Emergence" in the Main Gallery at Blue Star Contemporary from September 4 - November 9, 2014, with an opening reception Thursday, September 4 from 6-9 pm. After 32 years working in New York and London, Catherine Lee returned to her native state and built a studio in the Texas Hill Country, where her work continues, without the distraction of urban life. Lee has exhibited extensively, abroad and in the United States, having had one person exhibitions in galleries in major art centers world wide. The exhibition includes not only works from the last four decades of practice, but also new, large sculptures created for dance performance. Her work often builds off of how parts interact with the whole, referencing philosophies of emergence by writing, "Consciousness can be seen as an emergent property of the brain. Biological life can be understood as an emergence of interacting molecules."
