Questions to consider when visiting Catherine Lee’s sculpture Harris (Hebrides 2):
What kinds of lines and surfaces did the artist use to create this sculpture?
Does this sculpture feel man- made or natural? Why?

Catherine Lee is a native of the Texas Panhandle. Her minimalist Hebrides series of sculptures are named after the Hebrides off of the coast of Scotland. They convey a sense of awe similar to what one would experience when seeing the landscape and ancient stone structures of this area. The monochromatic patina used on this sculpture is consistent with Lee’s love of both sculpture and painting.
