March 2015


"Indispensable dispensables - 
lessons to still be learned"
Lee Berger
Exhibition March 1st-31st, 2015

Lee's paintings speak to this relationship in both subject and material, employing the imagery and debris of life, my life, along with the paint. These works posit a deep bond with our surroundings, and question whether we can release our attempt to control nature enough to let it nourish us?
