Lee L’Clerc

Lee L'Clerc is a Toronto-based contemporary artist, curator, translator and lecturer. Born in Lyon, France, he completed his Ph.D from the University of Toronto in Painting and Literature. L’Clerc’s teaching and research areas include visual and performance art, Caribbean and Latin American history, art and literary theory, translation studies, and queer studies. He has participated in numerous solo and group art exhibitions both nationally and internationally, including La Bienal de La Habana. L’Clerc’s art involves a strong attention to pictorial staging and presentation of his subject, believing that every image suggests a particular iconography. His characteristic painting style consists of surfaces that are built up through multiple layers of oil paint so that the rich opaque textures of the objects seem to emerge from an illusion of transparency.
