Light Leak, 2014

Joyce Yu-Jean Lee

Daylight filters through a rectangular window set high onto walls painted a rich, warm red. A diagonal slash of light along the wall forms the hypotenuse of a triangle, and prisms off the seam where the wall meets the floor. A white electrical outlet lends a note of realism to the room. The sparseness of the scene inside an art gallery in Beijing reduces it to a study in geometric angles augmented by light, reflecting Lee’s interest in the act of seeing.
