LEONARDO DREW

Leonardo Drew (b. 1961, Tallahassee, Florida) is known for his monumental installations where he manipulates wood and other found objects to create awe-inspiring sculptures that perform as abstract landscapes, which undulate and retract through a combination of natural and man-made shapes. His work is typically monochromatic, yet varies in color depending on how extensively he chooses to alter the material’s exterior. He often ages his found and fabricated materials by employing a process that is physically and conceptually steeped in memory, history and the passage of time. Interested in the reoccurring nature of creation, decay and regeneration, Drew’s work is made to resemble the debris of everyday life.
