“Minor Inconveniences” Brings Out Major Abstractions


Large-scale abstract paintings ask you to do things. They ask you to stand in front of them a while, to see what you see — because you can't know what you're seeing until you've stood in front of them a while. It's a process that, once “gotten,” can make you feel like you're free to do and think and feel whatever you want. Bay Area/Brooklyn painter Yoon Lee's enormous panels are perfect proof of the phenomenon. Her exhibit, “Minor Inconveniences,” opens Thursday.
