Leslie Wagner Art

As an exploration of impermanence, life, death, and direct experience, my work concerns the unification of time, the body, disintegration, and present-moment awareness . When painting, I disperse material, content, and light. The works are made up of tiny circles, residues left from a variety of pigments, binders, and evaporation. Scratching at the surface reveals the growth memory of the work and disperses visual history. Drawings consider overlaps of marks, each repetitive, yet unique.

By creating ambiguities in perception through these actions, manifested is a record of the process of living. Making choices, considering beauty and decay, the simple journey that is called Life, unfolds; it is a great and inspiring mystery to me.
