Revelation in non-objectivity
Magali Leonard’s acrylics suggest interplay between the contrasting organization of space that opensand closes while falling and rising and the rhythmic sequence of landscape. Intimations of relationships between mountain and water as well as other elements of nature such as between animals ans plants and between clouds , trees ans rocks are sensed through the Leonard’s use of reciprocal empty-full spacings whose cosmic liquid dimensions give rise to feelings of the sublime.
