Leah Giberson 2020 Virtual Opening
July 18-24, 2020 | 25 Commercial Street, Wellfleet
My current body of work explores the intersection between fact and fiction and the creation of a more personal truth that lives somewhere in between. I begin each piece with a photographic image, which I print in sections, cut up and reassemble onto a panel. I then meticulously paint over the entire layered image, covering up and altering the extraneous while unearthing and accentuating the parts that resonate with me. My process echoes the way we each edit and reconstruct our own memories in an attempt to organize the chaos and find meaning in our experiences. - Leah Giberson
