In the Reign of King Harad IV – Alex Boyd & Yuri Zupancic

The title of the final exhibition for 2013 at Leon is inspired from a short story by Steven Millhauser that was published in the New Yorker on April 10, 2016. In the Reign of King Harad IV is a story of a maker of miniatures who is celebrated for the uncanny perfection of his work. Over time the Master becomes restless and obsessed with making things smaller, and smaller until one day, no one can see his creations any more and the kingdom thinks he is mad. Alex Boyd and Yuri Zupancic are also masters of making things miniature, one through his metalsmithing, the other by painting masterpieces on microchips.

Eric R. Dallimore – On Year of Becoming Wonderbound

During the 2012/2013 Season, photographer Eric Robert Dallimore spent a year photographing Wonderbound (formerly known as Ballet Nouveau Colorado) in the studio and on-stage for every performance. What emerges are 60 intimate portraits of Garrett Ammon and Dawn Fay directing the dancers in the studio, behind the curtain, on the stage, and in the theater. Shot with 3200 speed film in both medium format and 35mm, these silver gelatin prints are stark, impassioned, and singularly intense.

JFK as an Indian; Icons, Assassinations, and Indiginy – Jimmy Descant

My Father took 9 pictures of JFK on the campaign trail in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 2 minutes in August, 1960 after marrying my Mother who grew up in Grand Haven, Mich. I grew up in New Orleans, where my Father is from. The 1″ negatives were given to me when I was young, and I had 2 sets developed as snapshots in the 1980’s. The negatives and photos survived Hurricane Katrina with little else, in a suitcase in my attic.

Color, Optics, Light – Barth Quenzer

In his most current body of work, Barth Quenzer finds comfort in an estranged aesthetic, a feeling that places the viewer in a space between the formal and the abstract. His paintings are thick and layered leaving plenty for the eye to discover. In these paintings, worlds collide with explosive color and texture. The recognizable themes in his work rely on playful studies and experimental painting processes using oils, acrylics, latex and found images.

Harmonographology: The Near-Unison – Andi Todaro

As with most of my work, Harmonographology, is an ongoing experiment in the visual and physical appreciation of the only slightly out-of-unison- and-ultimately-dependent nature of the universe, which happens to yield infinitely varied results even within this charmingly narrow scope of study.
