Lee Kleiman is a contemporary abstract painter inspired by an aesthetic of imperfection. Her paintings are a celebration of well-worn, weathered surfaces slightly faded by time and made more beautiful by the lines and marks that tell their stories. Letting go of outcomes and guided by intuition she spontaneously scratches, scrapes and layers paint, colour and texture, adding, eliminating and excavating between the layers until the essence of the painting emerges. Lee is drawn to both inner and outer landscapes and the emotional connection between them.
