Artist Statement

www.zaunlee.com
zaunlee@gmail.com

In my current works, I draw Lego blocks to explore how a mathematical element grows into a chaotic system. I apply a logical methodology to the practice of painting, informed by my background in philosophy. I have defined a set of formal rules that I follow during my painting process. The resulting compositions record the choices I make as I follow my self-imposed set of restrictions.
