Catalogue of Il Lee's solo exhibition at San Jose Art Museum in 2007. Susan Landauer wrote in the preface, '... Lee's use of ballpoint pen gives his art a freshness and originality that satisfies the avant-garde craving for the new. In Lee's hand, line achieves tremendous power and a range of moods and "personalities". At times it is strident and aggressive, ejected in great profusion. Yet Lee's touch can also be delicate, presenting a multitude of quivering, undulating strokes that suggest blades of grass stirred by a gentle breeze. In all cases Lee demonstrates a mastery of line that is breathtaking and absolutely unique - proving that abstraction is still very much alive and well.'
