Leah Tumerman - San Francisco, CA
Artist Info: Leah believes in the potency of images, our first language, and is inspired by layers, repetition, things both charming and grotesque (in particular the blurry lines between) and also, the impressively varied potential of pencil markings. She is on the trail of a story, be it hers, yours, the stories of the City, the stories of memory or nostalgia, and the stories of dreams. Of greatest importance, the impulse to make. To put into existence, to compose of separate parts, to wish and scheme up something from nothing. A note on medium: I cannot seem to choose. For instance I am very happy making a cake.
