Lee Materazzi USA


Lee Materazzi is a contemporary artist from Miami, FL now living in San Francisco, CA.  


Materazzi uses her body as a medium alongside color and texture, at times responding to remnants of work left by her children in the studio. Her compositions are off-kilter and investigate autonomy- rejecting acceptable social norms that regulate the human body. Materazzi's works are considered sculpturally, but exist only temporarily. She documents what she creates with medium format photography to preserve it. 


Her work has been shown internationally and is a part of numerous public art collections including the The Perez Art Museum (formally MAM), The Margulies Collection at the Warehouse, The Sagamore Collection and The Scholl Collection at World Class Boxing.
