Lanie Lee’s artwork is comprised of collages, sculpture, artist books, and scrolls that span over several decades. She is influenced by ancient writing systems (calligraphy, pictographs, hieroglyphics) and how they symbolize a connection to nature. An Asian American artist, Lee creates a personal iconography that combines calligraphic marks with pictographs to express cross- cultural ideas.
Lanie Lee was born and raised in the Bronx and is currently a West Village resident. She worked in book production for many years and uses a variety of book elements and formats in her artwork. She is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, a Bronx Artist in the Marketplace Fellowship; and artist residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Alpha Hills paper-making in Japan, and MASS MoCA.
