Rhys Lee: Jungle Rum Rumble

A new series of large scale paintings by Rhys Lee are currently on show at Brisbane's Jan Murphy Gallery until 16 April. Titled Jungle Rum Rumble, these vivid works reference an earlier transitional period in Lee's practice which are combined with new painting techniques.

Lee states: 'Jungle, ocean, heat, dance, pirate, native, fire, voodoo, rum, fever ... were some thoughts and actions while making this group of paintings.'
