The change of direction with “Form” in Lee’s work was prompted by contemplating how black people occupy space in private settings and communities. He considers the series an extension of his portraits and abstract paintings. By emphasizing architectural structures, including housing, civic buildings, storefronts, and places of worship, he intends to show the historical factors, culture, and people in marginalized neighborhoods. Ultimately, Lee wants to offer ideas of home, community, pride, and fellowship.
