In his customary pastose style, Joseph Lee created a series of works for "uncurated" under the title "Composite Paintings". The works provide an exciting insight into the diversity of his artistic repertoire. "Composite Paintings" can not only be read in the sense of a visual reconstruction of a person fed by memory, as suggested by the artist, but also describes the creative process behind the works. Segmented, pastose brushstrokes, which are placed next to and on top of each other and ultimately merge into a harmonious whole, which completely transcends the boundaries between figuration and abstraction. “These paintings are recollections of people we once knew. Over time, memory fades and details blur. Each piece is created instinctually, from memory, using natural strokes. This harmony, this disorientation is how I remember you now. I think.“ – Joseph Lee
