Conceptual and multimodal artist, Thaniel Ion Lee creates work that explores the body and the mind. A tenacious and disciplined practice in Louisville has led Lee to numerous solo and group exhibitions. A self described "jack of all trades (master of none)", Lee utilizes 2D, sculptural, aural, conceptual and performance approaches, juxtaposing "unrelated symbols and words to force the viewer to connect concepts that are normally separated in the mind".
