Statement

ARTIST STATEMENT

“My approach to art is spiritual in nature. Each series a visual narrative of my own search for meaning. I am interested in the transpersonal experience of creative process and infusing into the art that state of interconnectedness found in the timeless moments of creating. After years of exploring this idea in painting this concept has lead me to photography. At first I found myself picking up my camera to capture this phenomena of reflected pools of light as reference for paintings, but over the last several years the photographs have evolved into unique works of art of their own. 

Using the tools of macro digital photography I capture painterly abstract images of the aether. I choose to print these images using a sublimation heat transfer process which uses transparent pigments to infuse color into aluminum. This archival process produces a luminescent quality that allows these images to be shared as they were discovered, glowing from the inside. 

I do not photograph objects or places, I capture the energy signature radiating from objects and places. Just as a psychometrist reads the energy coming off a persons car keys to tell you about the owner, I use the tools of photography to bring a visual understanding to the phenomena of vibrating energies as creative catalyst described by physicists as quantum entanglement. 

My works answers to painter Wassily Kandinskys’ call to artists, to seek out the spiritual and report back using visual expression. Through the medium of macro digital photography I explore the vibrational nature of our physical world and the idea of resonance as the universal creative force. Accessing these normally invisible elements by dissecting rays of light with the optics of my camera lens, I capture these energy signatures that bring to my mind remnant fingerprints of a Devine consciousness at play.”

BIOGRAPHY

With a theosophist approach to creating Leslie Ebert connects with the creative source, allowing an intuitive discovery of imagery that exists in the micro world around us. This visual information provides a glimpse into the movement of energy flow, the make up of the universal field, and possibly the afterlife itself. 

Self taught as an artist, Ebert has a degree in Architecture from the University of Oregon in Eugene. Over the last twenty years Ebert's Mixed Media work has evolved from etching drawings into metal plates to transferring photographic images on to them. This body of work combines current image capture technology of macro digital photography with sublimation dye image transfer techniques which heat translucent pigments turning them into a gas that transfers into the metal surface, creating a soft painterly effect. White space becomes the silver of the aluminum support while the transparent pigments have an iridescence luster that creates a 3-D look to the finished works. 

Leslie Ebert's artwork can be found in numerous private and corporate collections around the Pacific Northwest including Austin Industries, art of the Allison Collection of Oregon artist's; as well as several private collections internationally (in India, China, Vietnam, England, France and Canada). Ebert has shown recently in group shows at the ‘National Association of Women Artists Gallery in New York and the Center on Contemporary art in Seattle Washington. Leslie Ebert has been listed in Whos Who of American Artists and her work has been on the cover of magazines most recently Art Access, Seattle, Jan/March 2014, as well as published in several books and journals including Diffusion; Unconventional Photography Annual Vol. IV, and 'Visual Journeys; Art of the 21st Century.’
