Robert Lee

Robert Lee is an artist specialising in the unique field of Box Art.  

Born in Canada and now Somerset based by way of Brighton, Suffolk and Toronto, Robert studied Art, Architecture and Design and practiced as a commercial designer for many years whilst also teaching design.  

Intrigued by the possibilities of Box Art, Robert was introduced to this artistic community by a travelling exhibition entitled ‘Worlds in a Box’. 15 years later inspired by two works of literature he began creating works of his own as a response to the rich spatial imagery and descriptions of place and object found in prose.

This oak box was modified for a work provoked by Poe's short test 'The Lighthouse' and Jeanette Winterson's wonderful novel 'Lighthousekeeping' which interweaves Darwinian concerns within a layered narrative about storytelling.

The piece contains hardwood trays that hold glass microscope slides. A hinged lid and front flap allows access to the trays/slides.The lighthouse style structure is a USB which holds Poe's short story and lights up once connected to a computer.
