There is a radio special online about Stephane Leonard (german only). It was aired on july 18th at the RBB culture radio station in Berlin & Brandenburg.
On july 18th 2013 a solo show with a brand new series of paintings/drawings will open at the Galerie im Turm in Berlin. The show will be open until september 1st.
For the past few months Stephane was working on a series of large scale canvases. As in previous works he started working from a full printed on canvas and then step by step replaced and eliminated the preprinted images and texts.
The show is curated by Lena Fliessbach and more info can be found HERE.
“For his new series YOU ARE MY FREEDOM / I AM YOUR PRISON Stephane Leonard works with acrylic lacquer and spray paint on large-sized prints on canvases. He overlays the found prints, conceals messages and erases images. The information and photographs which lie under these drawings represent and stand for all the things we do not know, we do not see, and what we do not understand.
The process of transformation and change of condition are topics which Stephane Leonard explores frequently in his work. In earlier series he has worked on adopted images and found footage. He fills in the intermediate spaces and inscribes signs of invisibility and the supernatural throughout the images.” (Lena Fliessbach)
