Intrigued by the possibilities of Box Art as a student, Robert Lee was introduced to this artistic community in 1995 by a travelling exhibition entitled ‘Worlds in a Box’. Fifteen 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.
