Mark Leonard

WEAVING #14

2011
gouache and synthetic resin on panel
24 x 24 inches

Artist (and former Dallas Museum of Art Chief Conservator) Mark Leonard’s Weavings series features “visual weavings” of line and color where meticulous gradations of light and shadow create the warp and weft of woven lines. Leonard considers these works meditations on love and loss, saying “interactions of these two experiences (form) the framework of our lives.” In Weaving #14, brightly colored diagonal stripes move among monochromatic vertical bands. Leonard’s deft technique depicts the way shadow and light transform the bands of color, highlighting the movement of light through the stripes and conveying a quality of translucency in the entire composition. Leonard’s work has been shown at the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, and The Palm Springs Art Museum, among others.
