Leslie Bender: BREAKING FREEOpening Reception , Saturday Nov. 18, 6-9

 By manipulating formal paint qualities, overlapping and interrupting representational imagery with density, layering, intensity, light and darkness, Leslie creates a visual tapestry that evokes the effect old emotional content and past illusions have on our current perceptions. Leslie :"My art illuminates a deep psychological frontier, and so the periphery of circus, carnival, restaurant, beach and pool becomes the borderline for the unconscious. Humans and animals, existing in contexts rife with symbolic allusion, articulate this landscape. Morphed by time and space, they surge across the flat surface, emerge only to get lopped off or disappear as they reenact powerful but silent emotion."
