ELKA LEONARD


About

Her paintings, with very precise scenography, give a vibrant tribute to the woman, which is the unifying idea of all her work. Her painting is mental, she likes to embark the observer in a labyrinth of femininity, the decor is colorful and full of references.



Elka Leonard says she is « a thief of emotion » because she likes to light people's imagination, to guide their chimera, to open their thoughts. Her work is based on «freezed frames». To know how to observe attentively is to suspend the movement of agitation of thought, to remain in the openness that the senses offer us and to let discovery enter into perception. With a lot of detail, she astonish, and let the perception its true power, which is to reveal a rich and complex presence.



She let us observe her reality : everyone is involved in a game of solicitations and answers affirming who he wants to be. Her latest works shows this allegory of identity: Who am I really? Works to go beyond appearances.
