Leslie Shows

Using pigment, collage, salt, rust and ink, Leslie Shows’ work wavers between abstraction and photorealism. She creates landscape painting within the context of geological time, the flow and transformation of matter, and the relationship between cultural and geological processes. Elements that make up the human body, piles of fingernails and pools of humors, are scattered across a landscape, while swirls of pigment are reincorporated into glacial rock flows. 


Shows’ work has been exhibited at the Orange County Museum of Art, the Oakland Art Museum, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s 75th Anniversary exhibition. Shows has been the recipient of an SFMoMA SECA Award in 2006, an Artadia award, and the Tournesol Award from the Headlands Center for the Arts.
