An afternoon with artist Rhys Lee in what was his Aireys inlet coastal studio.
A noted colourist, Lee is known for his beautiful, eerie, haunting paintings in acrylics and oils. ‘These works stir the imagination in ways akin to a powerful ghost story by the fire,’ wrote Ashley Crawford in 2008. ‘Despite their evident physicality, the sinuous brush strokes, the tactile, visceral mix of paint, they seem to float in an unearthly ether.*
His work is held in major collections in Australia and Europe
