Wheels and Reels by Lee Gilbert

Attendance at the exhibitions are FREE.
About the Exhibition
Viewers around the globe will experience our Singapore GP Season 2009. Lee Gilbert translates this raw energy into painted images in his “Wheels and Reels” solo exhibition.
As a painter, he sees technology as central to our culture and as a rich subject for artistic interpretation. Popular media-both film and television-sets the automobile in a social context. Cars represent freedom, power, and mastery: racing cars represent the apex of these desires.
Lee’s semi-abstract work explores these themes, drawing on the unique properties of materials to capture complex interactions among drivers, crew, spectators and the elements of the vehicles in action.
About the Artists
Educated in the United States and now a Singapore Permanent Resident, Lee Gilbert works in varied media, including painting in acrylics and oils and sculpture in precious metals, stone, and concrete. A former student of UK artist Mr. James Holdsworth of Block43 and Singapore oil painter and art teacher Mr. Wee Shoo Leong, he has participated in several exhibitions, including his solo show “Launch! – the Subculture of Speed,” at Singapore’s PanPacific Public Artspace in September 2008.
