It’s been a really long time since my last post and it feels great to be back!
Thanks to those of you who keep reading BoveyBlog.
This year has been totally insane and it is astonishing we are in November already. Where does the time go?
Oh, right, mine all went to cutting paper. Many people are curious how I create my work.
Here’s a slide show that offers insight into what it takes for me to make a cut paper piece. Hope you enjoy it.
It is my pleasure to share with you today San Francisco Examiner’s Review of Bovey Lee: Conundrums. I hope you enjoy reading it. If you have not seen the show yet, it is on view thru March 16 at Rena Bransten Gallery in San Francisco or you can tour it online here.
Opened my solo exhibition BLOOM/Bovey Lee at Grotto Fine Art in Hong Kong on May 9 (thru June 3).
BLOOM/Bovey Lee showcases 11 new cut paper works, including “Sewing Highways”, “Ironing Oceans”, “Bamboo Ballet”, “In the Same Boat”, “Dragging Cows Up A Tree”, “Pushing Mountains”, “Baking McMansion”, “Kites”, “Rice Bowl”, “Wingtip Voyage”, and “Wash, Cut, Dry”.
Grotto Fine Art published a richly illustrated catalogue to accompany the show.
Here’s a tour of the show.
My third solo exhibition at Grotto Fine Art opens on May 9, 2012. In “Bloom,” I will showcase a collection of cut paper that many are inspired by my recent visit to Beijing since my first time there in 1989.
Power, sacrifice, and survival are the underlying themes that connect all my cut paper. The works in “Bloom” explores how our occupational roles affect rampant urbanization and adapt to the ever-changing natural landscape.
I have completed all the works in the show and am working with Grotto’s designer on the richly illustrated catalog.
Solo exhibition title: BLOOM
Opening reception: 5:30-8pm, Wednesday, May 9
Exhibition dates: May 9–June 3, 2009
Venue: Grotto Fine Art, Hong Kong
