Title: Venus & Mercury
Graduating in fine art from Chelsea College in 2003 Sam Lee has spent the last 6 years doing everything but make art. The subsequent journey has seen Sam study and perform as a burlesque and contemporary dancer, teach outdoor wilderness living and eventually become a steadfast Folk singer, promoter, teacher, researcher and animateur. Joyfully back amongst his first love and métiers of canvas and PVA glue, Sam’s most recent return to his ‘art overalls’ was collaborating with artist Matt Stokes on his 2009 work the Gainsborough Packet in which Sam sings and plays the role of the films protagonist John Burdikin.
