Lee Deigaard

Lee Deigaard’s work portrays animal protagonists and the landscape we mutually inhabit and explores the various ways of seeing and being seen: the meeting and crossing of gazes, looking through and seeing [what is] past. The mind’s eye, the forensics of memory, recollection, and projection, the existential filters of species and tree branches and deep darkness. Eyes are windows, windows are viewfinders, boundaries, frames, and lenses. Object, subject, free will, trespass are illuminated in the hidden moments between moments. The plasticity of identity, of identification, shares borders – human and animal, light and dark, body and space.
