This piece is made up of five separate panels (pentaptych) and I like to hang them with 2" in between each panel.

The work addresses the rising oceans, and thus the houses are all on stilts. But despite its dark eco-message it is a very playful and interesting piece, full of movement, whimsy and detail.

Getting to Know Leslie

Leslie grew up in the desert and all the while lusted after the ocean. Her work is strongly influenced by her obsession with water and love of swimming. Nautical and aquatic motifs dominate her various series. To create her compositions, Leslie sources vintage photographs from libraries and museum stock collections to collage into her art. Her combination of photography and painting is intended to represent memories and emotions, respectively. Leslie brings together a wry humor, childlike joy, and an undertone of feminism to remind of us times past and offer us a roadmap for the future. Now a resident of San Francisco, Leslie is surrounded by water in her life and work.
