Henry Lee (b. 1981) holds a Master of Arts (Fine Art) from the LASALLE College of the Arts. He graduated with first-class honours in Bachelors of Arts (Fine Art) from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, and was the recipient of the NAFA President Award in 2013 and Best Graduate (Fine Art) award in 2014. His works have been shown at Mulan Gallery, Art Stage Singapore, Gillman Barracks, Goodman Arts Centre, ION Art Gallery, Singapore Botanic Gardens and the National University of Singapore.
Lee's practice has always revolved around exploring fictional dimensions and there came a point where he felt the need to ‘come home’. When does a house become a home? ‘Home’ and ‘house’ has been the same place for him for more than three decades. But it feels like a pipe dream to expect it to remain this way for three more. Thus birthed the current series of works where Lee takes a whimsical look at what happens if the familiar road and transport networks of Singapore were warped into an alternate dimension; and evoked memories and cherished relationships through still lifes situated in and around the flat the he has grown up in.
