    Taken from an instructional shadow puppet guide by Utagawa Hiroshige, the shadow bird is placed alongside the origin of its illusion. The hands may transform and take flight, but only behind the criss-crossed paper door that becomes their cage. The grid takes on the impression of a sliding puzzle. If only we could solve it.

    The Optimist Vs. A Category 3

    , Grace Lee, 2021, oil on linen, 180 cm x 100 cm

    A battle of wills between the wind and a tree. The tree defies the demands of the wind, rejecting their multi-directional influence, but it also relies on them - what is an optimist without adversity?

    Play Me Like A Cheap Kazoo

    , Grace Lee, 2021

    Over the lapel of a yellow blazer, a small hand holds an oversized kazoo. We might expect the narrow end to be the mouthpiece, trained on a roster of narrow mouthpieced wind instruments, and so believe it is angled away from us, perhaps offered to the figure in the blazer. But, in fact, it is the wider end that should be blown into. The end that is offered to us. The lightning bolts of sound signal the abrupt surprise that can only come from the realisation: you've played yourself.

    High Drama

    , Grace Lee, 2020, oil on canvas, 120 cm x 150 cm

    Four horsemen sit upon their steeds. The two parties appear disconnected, both preoccupied with their own level of the composition. But the formal symmetry of the tidy scene is betrayed by a stray muzzle stepping out of line to the lower left of the image. There's something brewing here, but the exhaustion of the horses and the composure of the figures suggests that maybe the apocalypse is a mundane affair. Creeping gradually, you might not notice it at all.

    all my pots

    , Grace Lee, 2020, oil on canvas, 70 cm x 120 cm

    'all my pots' gathers a selection of vessels drawn from The British Museum's collection, an attempt to hold onto objects that are themselves used to hold and carry. The words, written with scrapbook style enthusiasm, express a childlike mater-of-factness which is fitting for the ease with which the original images were accessed, possessed, appropriated. This, then, raises questions of ownership and legitimacy (via a museum that is famously under scrutiny for its 'possessions'). And while I may not possess the objects... the images of the objects? Those I can steal as fast as you can say 'right click, save as'.
