1; LENNIE LEE – My Broken Heart – My Broken Heart is a solo show of painting by Lennie Lee. Presented by Arts Omega and curated by Martin Vintner-Jackson. “While lying in hospital following open heart surgery in a morphine induced state Lennie was greeted by a beautiful red headed angel of death who greeted him like a long lost lover, he felt warm and complete and happy to see her, but the angel floated away to the bed next to him leaving him feeling he had lost something. On recovering the following morning he discovered the man in the bed next to him had died in the night. Lennie is still looking for his beautiful red headed angel of death”.

‘My Broken Heart’ is a collection of work where he explores his vision of the beautiful angel of death in an attempt to capture the completeness she gave him while his heart was quite literally broken. For this show Lennie draws on his love of Mexican cultural, London characters, street art and the great myth of the red headed women in art..
