Combining abstract painting with artisan frames, Belem Lett explores the relationship between gesture, recessive space and the role of the decorative border. Through fields of colour, elongated canvases, bulbous bodies and cut out shapes, Lett situates the abstract image within a history of baroque opulence. He humorously acknowledges our desire for painting to decorate interior space and also offer us transportation beyond it.
