Perfect Pie complemented the exhibition of the same name at Hales New York, 2019. Perfect Pie presents an overview of nearly two decades of the artist’s career. This selection highlights themes that recur across Slee’s substantial oeuvre: the great outdoors and the domestic interior (or “the great indoors,” as he prefers to call it). Slee integrates fabricated references to the decorative, the ornamental, and the symbolic—both from past histories and within contemporary culture. These eclectic sources reposition and reframe everyday objects in novel contexts.
