Porous Boundaries, Lee Heekin, 18_ x 6 feet

How would you describe your art? My work is an exploration of the grid in its many disassembled forms. I explore the human instinct to label, categorize and compartmentalize. My disassembled grids speak to the fragmentation in our world created by these instincts and attempt to suggest a brighter outcome through the organic nature of the… [Cont.]

I used shaped plywood with beeswax and plexiglass with acrylic. Who or what influences you/your work? Where do you draw your inspiration? Fashion, streetlife, travel. Describe the process of creating your art? How… [Cont.]
