Lee Lessem

Lee Lessem is known for her acrylic on canvas, highly saturated colourful abstracts, reminiscent of Ellsworth Kelly colour blocks and use of negative spaces. Very much her own style, she tells stories with textures, shapes and lines, painting the scenes she views of nature and the park beyond her window. 

Lee Lessem, Canadian abstract artist

Lee Lessem is a Canadian abstract artist.  She graduated with a BAFA degree from the University of the Witwatersrand, Johnannesburg. Lessem is a creative force with numerous exhibitions in Newmarket and Toronto, Ontario.  Lessem was featured several times in ArtAscent International Art and Literature Journal.  Recently her art was featured in the film "Sugar Daddy". Her art is placed in private and public collections across North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, Southern Africa and Canada.


Artist Statement

Born on a farm in Africa and surrounded by the magnificence of natural beauty, painting has always been an excellent medium for me to test the tension between the real and the abstract - what we perceive and that which truly exists.

I am an abstract expressionist painter -  constantly excited by every nook and cranny in our lives that we see but most often don’t notice.  The entanglements of life and nature cement me to my roots still, and hold me in this natural web - so subtle and so beautiful.

There is a delicate balance between fluidity and structure, softness and vitality, transparency and solidity, mystery and clarity in my work. The familiar seems to dangle just out of reach, the common becoming uncommon, drawing the viewer further into my world.

To paraphrase Cicero:  “man not so much creates as discovers and rediscovers.” I hope to inspire those who see my work to look more carefully at the world around them and to discover beauty in unusual places.

My abstract expressionist paintings allow for freedom of interpretation and it is my hope that my work affords the viewer an experience as unique as they are.
