“My wish is for everyone that comes in contact with my work to be able to visualize themselves in the scene captured and be present within that moment.”
NEW YORK, NY, July 18, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Art At Fame Gallery will be presenting a unique exhibition featuring the budding photographer and mixed-media artist, Fiona Lee, from July 14 – August 8, 2020. The Rising: A Photography Exhibition will feature a stunning collection of images taken direct from the front lines of the recent #BLM protests in NYC and Long Island.
The Rising: A Photography Exhibition seeks to showcase the uninhibited truth of the global #BLM protests triggered by the murder of George Floyd, with a focus on the NY protests. With this exhibition, Lee seeks to connect art and reality by challenging our senses, our emotions, and our perspectives.
When asked about what this exhibit means to her, Lee said about the protests, “I wanted to capture moments that were not being highlighted in the media. Wanting to show the authenticity of what the movement was/is supposed to be.”
A native of Georgetown, Guyana, Lee, and her mother relocated to the United States when she was nine years old. Lee always expressed an interest in art, but it was not until a photography course taken in her sophomore year of college that she truly found her passion for creating. After obtaining her degree in Legal Studies, Lee enrolled in the Visual Arts program at SUNY College at Old Westbury where she began to grow and evolve as an artist.
Lee’s multicultural background influences and sets the tone for all her work. With a distinctive and personal approach to her art, Lee’s works tell stories that are untarnished, unbiased, and emote to all those who are brave enough to look.
