Fair Director’s Pick for the Week of November 19
“Jackie Leishman is an American artist, based in Los Angeles, whose ‘Yosemite’ series explores ‘the beauty found in tension, in nature, and in our lives.’ Through collage, and with the application of ink, pastels, and paint, she explores and expresses ideas that are seemingly at odds with each other—creation and destruction, expansion and contraction—piecing together fragments of old projects and various materials in new relationships with each other to create something whole.” -Nicole Garton, Fair Director
Big Yosemite III by Jackie Leishman | $8,000
As Nicole forms her recommendations, she is considering key aspects of an artist’s work that demand special recognition—whether it be a fully articulated style that is unique and arresting, a mastery of technical skill that reveals an uncommon talent, or a strong underpinning of ideas that is fresh and provocative. It is our hope this this series will help you discover an artist whose works you really love.
