Thaniel Ion Lee's work is about exploring both the body and the mind. His work attempts to make the viewer look beyond the everyday by juxtaposing unrelated symbols and words to force the viewer to connect concepts that are normally separated in the viewer's mind.
Lee's work has been exhibited at the Speed Art Museum, the Kentucky Museum of Art + Craft, and was represented at Swanson Contemporary in Louisville, KY from 2005 - 2019. His work can be found in the collections of the KMAC Museum , 21c Museum Hotels, University of Louisville, as well as in private collections across Kentucky, California, and New York among others.
