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.
