Now Be Here: Leigh Salgado #294
Feeling inspired after attending the historic event Now Be Here at Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. My goal is to feature every artist that attended, one artist a day. Considering the number of artists that showed up, this will take me two years to complete. I am looking forward to getting to know the work of each and every artist!
Your inspiration for the day- Now Be Here edition: Leigh Salgado
From Leigh Salgado:
Leigh Salgado is a nationally exhibiting Los Angeles artist.
Her labor-intensive compositions are of abstracted imagery occasionally morphing into recognizable subject matter. Viewers are simultaneously looking at interpretations of netting, lace, clothing patterns and original woven abstraction.
Salgado’s work is sometimes labeled, Sculpted Drawing, because the medium brings a third dimension into pictorial space without compromising the elements of drawing. Exacto knives are used to eviscerate the negative space between the lines in her ink drawing, while texture and shadows reinforce a physical experience. Hung away from the wall, this medium delivers the spatial sensation of a third dimension in static two-dimensional drawings.
