About

Leslie Zelamsky's "Point of Departure 8" is a 55.75 x 25 x 25 inch sculpture that is constructed with pine, cedar and paint. The piece consists of two parts that connect when the top piece is placed inside the bottom. The top of the piece is carved out to expose a bowl-like space. Shims and slats of wood are glued, nailed, stacked and carved to create this dynamic sculpture with organic curves, hard edges and surprise spaces. While architectural references exist in the form, the piece has a warm and soft quality found in the texture, patterns and spaces that result from Zelamsky's building process. This piece is signed on the bottom and is free-standing. Point of Departure 8 is the eighth piece in Zelamsky's "Point of Departure" series where the artist explores how she arrives at a finished piece. Deeply rooted in intuition and spontaneity, each layer is the result of the moment that came before. The "Point of Departure" series also reflects major departures in the artist's personal life that have influenced her arrival in the present. Leslie Zelamsky is a mixed media artist who creates paintings, sculptures and installations. Her paintings celebrate the contrasting aspects of the mind’s use of intuition and deliberate action. She uses paint, tar, stain, and other materials to create abstract images that reference architecture, light and space. Zelamsky’s sculpture explores the ideas of separation, inclusion and isolation; reflected in commonplace structures, through the use of common building materials. Zelamsky’s forms are concurrently architectural and organic. Physicality is an important part of the artist’s work as she seeks synergy between visual and physical weight. Intuition and process are fundamental as are allowing and patience. While Zelamsky’s sculpture and installations lean to political and societal issues, there is also an inherent seductive, aesthetic beauty in the form, space and texture. Zelamsky’s goal is to provide the viewer with an image that allows an ethereal experience. She is represented by Fountain Street Gallery in Boston, MA.
