New paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Tae Lee (previously featured here). A visual meditation on consciousness and humanity, Lee’s latest work is part of a larger re-examination of our assumptions about self-agency and the extent to which we can take credit for the people we become. As he explains:
“Maybe it’s increasing humility with age, but I don’t see humans as an entity above the natural world. Our current self is the manifestation of the universal lineage, every single moment before now. Fortunately and unintuitively, this only opens up more opportunities for compassion. A chance to practice unconditional love, as everyone is exactly who the world shaped them to be, not of their own accord.”
