Hummingbird : Oil on Canvas : 15" x 15" : Available for Aqua Wynwood

Leslie describes her work, “Through the story captured in my paintings I hope to convey feminine perspectives on issues created by the dysfunction of our culture.”

Curiosities of Old

Leslie’s work is deep in meaning, In “Curiosities of the Old” she tapped into society’s obsession with being young. Leslie describes, “The large female figure symbolizes an older woman who is fascinated with her youth. In the glass enclosure on her head is a computer chip that symbolizes a mind that processes information logically without emotion. She studies the child intensely trying to figure out her secrets, while hoping to recapture what she has lost. Her large size in the small room represents the obsession of being young and its destructive properties, just try to move around and see what happens. Also, the corrosion of the room symbolizes the inevitable loss of innocence and this youthful enlightenment.”
