Il Lee: Ballpoint Abstractions

It’s sometimes difficult to appreciate a work of art until you see the actual work that goes into it. The exhibit Il Lee: Ballpoint Abstractions—on view at the San Jose Museum of Art through July 8—illustrates the creative possibilities of drawing with “common” tools like a blue Papermate pen. The museum has posted a video preview of the artist’s ballpoint pen handiwork on YouTube. The fascinating video is accompanied by Martin Brenick’s lovely and frenetic musical composition.
