Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
American sculptor. Lee came to prominence as a Minimalist in the 1970s. An interest in Modernism and the monchrome, as well as a hostility to narrative, made the grid her starting point, following which she began to paint predominantly in black.

In the mid-1980s she began to divide up her surfaces with dynamic diagonals and introduced more colour. "Nututun" is typical of this stage, when her work developed into wall reliefs: an irregular polygon in shape, it is divided into two fragments of amber-coloured, patinated bronze that partially enclose two smaller fragments of green-coloured bronze.

By the end of the decade she was making wall reliefs comprised of a number of small, shaped and differently coloured panels constructed from various metals, often arranged in large grid compositions. "40 Faults" consists of 40 large green-black patinated metal reliefs, similar to apostrophes in shape.

In the late 1990s she began to produce free-standing sculpture, though the forms of the pieces were still predominantly flat and frontal. "Sibyl" a large green patinated bronze, resembles an elongated rock. She also began to use ceramic as a material in her reliefs, and, by firing the pieces to produce prominent craquelure lines, she introduced a much greater emphasis on surface texture. While Lee’s work has continued to situate itself in relation to Minimalism, she has developed an increasing interest in evoking landscape and natural materials.
