Rosanna Lee arranges and manipulates objects in order to create abstract sculptural compositions that draw attention to the detail and formal qualities of the materials and their dialogue with the architectural features of the site. She explores how sculpture can be understood in terms of the human body, gesturing towards the possibility for the work to become a substitute for the body and vice versa.
Time spent studying at Glasgow School of Art developed Lee’s confidence and allowed her to establish a process for making experimental, sometimes spontaneous, sculptural installations, performances and video work.
She was recently awarded the Chairman’s Medal for Fine Art. On graduating, GSA permanent collections acquired some of her work and she is now working towards the RSA New Contemporaries exhibition which will take place early next year.
