Over the past fifteen years, Lee Boroson has been best known for his room-filling inflated sculpture. These often-colorful sewn-nylon enclosures find inspiration in many sources from historic garden design and Hudson River School paintings, to the specific architectural details of their sites. Boroson’s interest in architecture regularly finds form in descriptions of over-looked sections of buildings. His most recent work incorporates cellular and stellar formations, as well as weather conditions, that physically shift from micro to macro and vice versa.
Lee Boroson’s solo exhibitions include Sara Meltzer Gallery, New York., The Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery, Skidmore College, Saratoga Springs, NY, Ingalls & Associates, Miami, FL, Pierogi, Brooklyn, NY, Reynolds Gallery, Richmond, VA, Genovese/Sullivan Gallery, Boston, MA, and The Whitney Museum of American Art at Phillip Morris, New York. He is currently a Part-Time Critic in the Sculpture Department at The Rhode Island School of Design. Lee Boroson lives with his wife Kirsten and son Jasper in Brooklyn, NY.
