Just found this post of a large installation piece painted by my very dear friend Lee Lavy. It’s part of the second solo show he did at a space called Ice Gallery in San Diego. He and three of his friends, all brilliant conceptual artists, run this place. If you click on the photo, it should take you directly to their site. They need some help raising money to fix their roof so they can continue to have a space to make and show art. If you’ve got some extra dough, please throw it their way!
Lee is one of my greatest friends and artistic inspirations. His obsession with making and learning about art is quite admirable. He always schools me in art history and process, which is one of the many reasons I love him. It is his life. In addition to running the gallery, he currently works doing installation for the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego, and takes classes full time at SDSU aiming towards a fine art degree.
He gave me one of his paintings that didn’t make it into his first show at Ice Gallery. It’s the only piece of artwork I have hanging in my new room. You can see it here.
