Leslie Thornton is a pioneer of experimental and avant garde media; her career spans over 30 years and encompasses a variety of media; beginning with painting and moving into film, video, photography and installation. Her impact on the development of and experimentation with the moving image is almost immeasurable, indicated in small part by her numerous international accolades and awards.
Leslie’s latest series of video installations and photography, featured in “Radical Symmetry”, can be said to be a combination of all these explorations. Extraordinary cinematography, detailed observation and masterful technique unite to unveil and characterize complex animal behavior in a seemingly simplistic visual form. Through visual representation and abstraction, the observer is at once transfixed, astonished and inspired.
