About The Artwork

The body of work is an offshoot from the Yosemite series and is made with a poem from Wendell Berry in mind. "When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time ​I rest in the grace of the world, and am free." Yosemite explores the beauty found in tension, in nature and in our lives. Each piece is a unique essay into the natural environment, contrasting the violence and constant movement of water with the solid strength of an otherwise unyielding stone landscape. Each piece in the series begins by creating reverse drawings using printmaking ink to lay down the bones and structure of the image. The pieces then evolve and grow as collage elements are added. The series began after a trip to Yosemite National Park in the spring. I was overwhelmed by the dichotomy of the landscape and the effects of time. The all encompassing noise of the waterfalls, the size of the boulders and the softness of the meadows are etched into my mind. The series consists of drawings, monotypes and collages

Leishman grew up in Georgia, moving to the Los Angeles area after completing her Masters of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Originally trained as a photographer, she now works in collage.  Using both traditional and non-traditional materials, including fragments of old projects, Leishman explores the dichotomies she witnesses. It is the push and pull between two ideas that intrigues her most, the animating tensions between destruction and creation, expansion and contraction, explosion and implosion — and religion and science. Collage fits the exploration and expression of these ideas. In collage the artist divides and connects. She takes fragments and places them, brings them into new relationships, to make something whole. She states, “Starting from what I already had in my studio, I gather fragments of old projects and give them new life. In bringing these elements of my studio together, I witness and partake in the ideas: Creation from destruction. Creation from chaos. Creation from the elements.” She has shown her work nationally, won awards, and taught fine art at universities in Utah and California. Her work is beloved by designers such as Leanne Ford. She recently exhibited in Downtown LA and recently had a solo show at Granary Arts, titled “Heaving into Mountains”. She recently began a collaboration with evolutionary biologist Steven Peck on a body of work investigating the loss we will continue to experience with climate change.
