Leemour Pelli

Leemour Pelli’s paintings and drawings almost read like blurry Xrays; skeleton-like figures blend into streaked backgrounds that bleed and smudge. Typically composed of a pinkish-red, with indistinct facial features, their fleshy qualities are strongly implied, though never fully graspable. “I try to show what makes us blind, or try to make our blindness seen, by examining not only the visible aspects of reality, but also the limited nature of one's perception(s),” says the artist who calls her style of exploring the human condition “almost sight.”


She has had solo exhibitions at the Daneyal Mahmood Gallery in New York, Annina Nosei Gallery, the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at Robert Fontaine Gallery in Miami, the Whitney Museum of American Art at Champion, PS1 Institute of Contemporary Art in Long Island City, and Artcore Gallery in Toronto.
