Lee Harvey Roswell (-)
Lee Harvey Roswell is a self-taught artist from Freefall, New York, now based in San Francisco. His work is noted for its blend of angst and humour. Themes of death and entropy, tribulation and futility run amok in his distinctly surreal, often slapstick and nightmarish world. The result is satirical, ironic and melancholic, but always beautifully depicted.
Although having great drawing skills, for the past decade or so his attention has turned almost exclusively to oil painting. His work is shown, collected and published internationally, being included in numerous exhibitions at key galleries and museums, including the Modern Eden Gallery. Lee Harvey Roswell has been featured in articles for the Fine Art Connoisseur, the Hi-Fructose contemporary art magazine.
