Offsite: Khan Lee





    Vancouver artist Khan Lee creates Red, Green and Blue a time-based sculptural installation that uses light and colour to animate nature. Drawing on broad references of horizon lines and landscape art, Lee enables passers-by to visualize the wind.

    Building on a sense of theatricality in his work, Lee’s installation acts as an elaborate set comprised of several hundred three-dimensional objects that cast larger-than-life sized shadows against an enormous backdrop. Red, Green and Blue draws viewers into the intersections of artifice and nature with a prairie-like field yielded from blow-molded plastic bottles. It is both painting and sculpture, deploying light filtered by primary colours red, green and blue to unfold an array of possibilities of form and break up the monotony of its grey surroundings.
