Last Friday, David Choong Lee premiered his latest body of work in his solo show, “Organic Updates,” at 111 Minna Gallery. Unconventional in its set-up, “Organic Updates” consists of five enormous installations — each one dominated by a single color — that are composed of multitudes of small paintings on panel. Utilizing these scattered images, Lee creates something like a visualization of a train of thought. Many small images and ideas float throughout the work, some executed with thorough, precise detail and others hastily painted with expressive strokes. Lee’s ability to marry portraiture and abstraction shines in these new works. Take a look at our exclusive opening night photos below.
