Lee Imonen is a public artist working in sculpture and Design. His work is centered on the relationships between people and the objects and spaces with which they surround themselves. This focus often highlights the tenuous interdependence between humanity and the material world in which we live. Through complex manipulation of various media, the work is intended to create a reflective space for the viewer to understand their relationship to the sculptural object, the spaces they inhabit and their role as consumers in the broader world.
He was awarded his BA from Willamette University, and his MFA from the University of Oregon. He has completed many public commissions throughout the state of Oregon and has work in both public and private collections nationally and internationally.
He has been teaching at Lane Community College since 2000 and is a partner in the IMONALI DESIGN team.
