Project Gallery presents the exhibition How to Hold Yourself by artist Ness Lee throughout March. Attend the Opening Reception on March 1 from 6-9pm.

A course in time has no measurable distance, conceivable path or foreseeable structure, a mourning ensues that becomes eponymous in everything, transforming into a rumination of memories coinciding with unsettled realities.

In a desire to lose it all, while holding on to what is left- states of mind are explored during incomprehensible stages of vulnerability. Taking form as an effort in seeking comfort, forgiveness and desire for an end of a self-perpetuated state.

Ness Lee draws on history and personal narratives to create dreamy and surreal illustrations, paintings, sculptures, and installations. Often featuring her unique characters, Lee’s work offers a humorous and charming look at ideas of identity, culture, love, belonging, and oneness through her line work and novel use of media. Ness Lee’s work has been featured at the AGO First Thursdays, Drake Hotel, and the Tokyo Art Book Fair, as well as galleries in Boston, New York, and Toronto.
