Lee Lessem

Lee Lessem, ArtAscent Gold Artist of the Grey call for artists.

Gerhard Richter, a celebrated German artist, believed grey is “equivalent for indifference, non-commitment, absence of opinion, absence of shape.” But Lee Lessem takes an opposite approach to the colour, trying to prove it to be fully charged with emotions and presence. A curious fact is that grey became extremely popular among Russian aristocracy in the 19th century.
