Abstract:

June Leaf's body of work - one built over nearly seven decades - belongs within a long tradition of visionary figures, from William Blake and Francisco Goya to James Ensor and Odilon Redon. Like these innovative predecessors, and fusing elements of both Expressionism and Surrealism, Leaf creates representational imagery with an intense subjectivity and personal symbolist vision. Leaf's fundamental interest in metamorphosis and states of becoming as subjects is paralleled in her working process. As imaginary as the artist's world is, her practice is deeply corporeal, materially rich, and firmly rooted the in physicality of the objects and mediums she uses. Leaf tends to work daily, driven by instinct and intuition. She sometimes invents new themes and motifs, but these often arise organically out of older ones, and the array of subjects she?s developed over the years remain close and ready for revisiting or adapting.
