Frank Lee’s first solo art show is up at Oui.Gallery Hong Kong. They released a writing about a series of 5 illuminated bowls, each work titled, “The Last Grain”. Frank ponders, “I wonder what passes through the mind of a farmer, as the seeds, set aside for next spring, are boiled in the cooking pot. And, as the bag reaches its end, the child’s face still hollow, what dark void does one’s mind inhabit, as the last grain lies in the bowl?”
The writing continues and is best read while viewing these five pieces.
