Artist Statement

Secret histories lay within discarded objects, documents, and ephemera. They are marked by exchanges and interactions of unknown consequence: a decision or gesture, an emotion or undertaking, a memory or moment with the potential to trigger another. These materials, both mundane and monumental, have the power to reveal things about our past, present, and future not just because of what they are but who we are.

My work investigates memory's impact on the creation and analysis of images, objects, and information. By altering the original form and function of the materials used, I explore how visual information is interpreted and renewed through individuals, communities, and systems of power. The collages, drawings, and sculptures in this exhibition, are a collection of personal and communal experiences, a product of experimentation, repetition, limitation, and circumstance.


Jonathan Lee is an artist, librarian, and musician living and working in Richmond VA. His work, shown domestically and abroad, is held in various collections around the globe. This fall he will be presenting his exhibition and workshop series, Curriculum Lab, at the Virginia Library Association Conference and Christopher Newport University.
