A practicing painter for over 20 years, Emily Leonard is known for sublime representations of landscapes and wildlife. Developed through a process of layering transparent glazes, gestural lines and emotive brushwork, her recent paintings transform botanical studies into meditative aesthetic experiences. Each layer plays a role in distilling the literal representation of her subject. Dense moments of movement and lavish intricacies hover delicately between abstraction and representation. Sweeping pastel hues generate a delicate balance of light and dark, transparency and opacity – unraveling rhythm and visceral essence of the plant. Leonard is inspired by the astonishing beauty and perpetual tenacity of flowers, returning year after year for a brief and vulnerable yet ecologically crucial lifespan.
