LEIGH TARENTINO

Contemporary Artists
Bath

'My work is a re-configuration of the built landscape, using photographs I’ve taken around the area I live in as source material. The drawings are an exploration of the idea of the sublime applied to the contemporary landscape. Juxtaposed within the drawings are elements that are beautiful, awkward, enigmatic, familiar, strange, ordered, and random. Aesthetically, within the work there are experiments with language, geometry, the rules of perspective, and the illusion of depth, among other formal qualities. The drawings function as visual puzzles and as imaginary worlds, both utopian and dystopian. '
