For our second summer exhibition, we are delighted to be able to show a collection of Hugh Lee’s 3-D assemblages, a small part of the body of work he began making after a long career as a civil servant.

 

‘How an idle collector of ceramics, pictures, fossils picked up on walks on the Sussex Downs, pebbles from holiday beaches, ‘useful’ washers and scrap metals began to change, on retirement, from a mainly intellectual job, into a maker of the standing objects, assemblages and paintings which fill his home, defies analysis.

 

He attributes it to the gift, by his mother-in-law (a talented painter before her marriage), of her collection of some eighty paintbrushes - unused since the 1930s’.

 

Excerpt from the catalogue: Hugh Lee - A Retrospective 2008, Orleans House Gallery.

 

These works are shown courtesy of the Lee family.
