In Another Day, Zac Lee presents a body of work that centres around the everyday, depicting the most routine of acts and finding joy within them. Using sombre and bleak hues helps further illustrate the paintings’ uneventfulness and normality such as picking up a book put down from the night before, a quick sketching session, and a Sunday afternoon. To him, everyday life is valuable — the bad times, the good times, everything in between, and everything that comes before and after.
Today’s ending simply means tomorrow’s beginning. At the works’ core, it is Lee’s way of magnifying these vignettes of life onto the canvases, celebrating their simplicity as he believes that life’s fulfilment is found in these everyday moments.
