Adam Lee lives and works in Macedon Ranges, just outside of Melbourne, Australia. He recently completed his PhD at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. Adam’s work references a wide range of sources including historical and colonial photography, biblical narratives, natural history and contemporary music, film and literature to investigate aspects of the human condition in relation to ideas of temporal and supernatural worlds.
2015 was a breakout year for Adam, with solo-exhibitions, Eden. Exile. Babel, at Station Gallery in Melbourne, and A Long Obedience, at BEERS London in the UK. Adam then made his North American solo-exhibition debut in 2016 with Of a Great and Mighty Shadow at Angell Gallery in Toronto. Adam was hand-picked by Kim Dorland to be included in his curated exhibition, I ♥ Paint 2 at Angell Gallery, which featured Kim's favourite painters of the moment from around the world. Artist Andrew Salgado included Adam in a group exhibition, Fantasy of Representation at BEERS London.
Adam has been named a finalist for The Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize (2015 & 2013), the Geeolong Contemporary Art Prize (2014), the National Works on Paper Prize (2014) and The Churchie National Emerging Artist Award (2012).
