Statement

Leslie Gabaldon attended The New England School of Art and Design in Boston and was among the first artists to manipulate her work through a computer. Her animations and renderings were shown at SIGRA, an Autodesk exhibition in the early 90s, and in 1996 she joined The Art Students League of New York and opened a studio in DUMBO. After several years of painting, Gabaldon began her work in photography. She continued her path as an artist, with camera in hand, as her first solo show at the Project Room in Dot Fiftyone Gallery in Miami opened in 2007. Gabaldon then completed an Artist-in-residence program at the prestigious Altos de Chavon school of Design in 2007 where her passion and mastery of photography only grew stronger.

Her constant search for the narrative within the image delivers a profound and interesting concept in each body of work that she presents. Her “El Campo” series captures much more than images of life on a farm; it captures the spirit of life on a farm in all its simplicity and enviable tranquility through the fading of color and saturation.

On the other hand, within “Visual Remarks”, we have the colorful Plexiglas wall installation called “Lovesick”, which is inspired on a 17th century Chinese love story. Several clipboards that hold photographs with an etched phrase below compose the piece. In this series, Gabaldon incorporates text as an absolute necessity to its content, elaborating on the joy, pain, and intensity that accompany love.

GOODY TWO SHOES Her upcoming March 2010 solo show, brazenly and naughtily called “Goody Two Shoes”, continues with the exploration that sparked in “Domestic Intimacies” (2007) in which Gabaldon enters the secret moments of household’s everyday lives. A preview will be on view at Dot Fiftyone Gallery’s booth B58 in Art Miami 2009. The March show will present a series of photographic work and installations that proposes a reflection on woman's sociological memory and their personal, ideological and professional issues in the contemporary world.

"Goody two-shoes", often used to describe an excessively or annoyingly virtuous person. In more recent years, the phrase has developed a more negative connotation, implying that the virtuousness of a "goody two-shoes" is insincere
