Glass Breakfast: Thaniel Ion Lee


Q&A
Ian Carstens



Artist Thaniel Ion Lee creates work that explores the body and the mind. A tenacious practice in Louisville has led Lee to numerous solo and group exhibitions, with recent work at KMAC Museum, the Speed Art Museum, and Moremen Gallery. A self-described "jack of all trades (master of none)," Lee utilizes various material, conceptual, and performance approaches that contrast "unrelated symbols and words to force the viewer to connect concepts that are normally separated in the mind." Filmmaker Ian Carstens sat down with Lee for a conversation in Moremen Gallery's Main Street office.
