The colourful arrangements presented in Lee Marshall’s paintings reflect his interest in distorting found content and inventing imagery. Marshall collects a vast amount of visuals, then uses digital technology to compile his findings into a series of mysterious and dynamic concoctions. While the paintings appear to reference familiar objects in surreal landscapes, Marshall’s works offer an alternative to traditional painting by highlighting the potential for assimilation and its considered integration to a digitalised world. Lee Marshall has created some digital collages incorporating his paintings, found imagery and computer generated graphics to show an insight into his process.
