Leslie Kell: In a Strange Game
In a Strange Game
Digital photo collage
Prints mounted on richly stained cradle boxes with a shiny resin overlay.
The title comes from “On The Way Home” by Neil Young.
6” x 6”
The photos are from the gulf coast shores of Florida, downtown skyscrapers in Dallas and underwater scenes from an Alaska aquarium.
The newest series of designs in the Come Closer Collection feature partially submerged pyramids. These pieces are as much about the seen as the unseen. Perhaps they can remind us that things are not always what they appear on the surface.
Get to Know the Austin Artist:
The artworks I create are visual journeys that begin with my photography, which is digitally composed into the patterns of my designs. As the photos are layered and manipulated into the drawings; the imagery interacts to create the highlights, shadows, contours, and textures of the artwork and a surreal environment begins to emerge. The more you look, the more you see.
