Michael Lee - Artist Demonstration

Date: February 17, 2018 Time: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Event Description Please join us for a demonstration by Michael Lee, a local trompe l’oeil clay artist. All are welcome!


Lee’s adventure in clay began as a hobby, following an interest in courses at a local community college.  The artist’s personal style soon started to take shape, and he became fascinated with the trompe l’oeil style, French for fool the eye.’His first hyper-realistic clay sculptures - "Government Issue," a replica of a World War II army canteen in a canvas cover, and "Hard Times," a replica of a battered leather suitcase- won first place awards at local exhibitions and led the way to his personal style.
 
Always on the lookout for new subject-matter, Michael scours farmer’s markets and antique stores for the perfect models. "I like to sculpt old, beat up leather and canvas objects, such as suitcases, doctor's bags, backpacks, boots, and leather fire helmets - artifacts of human existence.  My sculptures are intended to confuse the senses, creating a gap between perception and reality."
