“One gets the feeling that Lee Munsell wants to communicate more than paint alone can suggest He uses nuances of light to create transcendent evocations.”
“Lee Munsell uses nuances of light to create transcendent evocations. At a time when excess is a great temptation for an artist, it is refreshing to find an individual like Munsell who embraces time-honored tradition then attempts the difficult.
He explores the profundity of water and light, presenting a shimmering work on rocks, or a glow of luminosity in back lit waves.” –William Havlicek, art critic

ON YOUR MARKS, an exhibition, featuring NW artists Gayle H. Seely, Diane Copenhaver, Mary Burgess, and Lee Munsell.
The artist, Lee Munsell, is a Luminist, as he explores a range of naturalistic subject matter with a sensitive eye for varying degrees of luminosity. He takes on the more difficult subjects of water, its weight, and its under tow in the tidal current.
“On your marks” a command given to runners at the beginning of a race in order to get them into the correct position to start.
