Leslie is a 2009 San Francisco Bay Area Awardee.

The Los Angeles–based artist Leslie Shows uses molds and unconventional materials such as laser-cut aluminum, resin, wood, Plexiglas, engraving on aluminum, and sulfur, in addition to paint and collage, to complete her monumental works. In her expansive and cryptic paintings she connects geologic timescales with urgent and intense imagery, while her sculptures of cast sulfur and visually rich, abstracted images of pyrite suggest ruptures of language, meaning, and substance. Shows aims to accurately depict an object’s source, yet at the same engage the alchemical mythology of its materials.
