  • Description

    Leslie Wayne was born in Germany and grew up in Los Angeles. Following two years at the University of California, Santa Barbara, a year in Paris and five years in Israel, she moved to New York in 1982 and transferred to Parsons School of Design where she earned her BFA in Sculpture with Honors. Largely informed by her identification with the light, colors and tactile sensibilities of the West Coast, Wayne’s work intersects painting, sculpture, abstraction, and representation to create a direct and intimate experience of the world around her.

    Wayne has exhibited widely throughout the United States and abroad and has received grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts (2018, 2006), the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation (2017), the Joan Mitchell Foundation (2012), the Buhl Foundation (2004), the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation (1994), and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation (1985). Her work is in numerous public collections, including the Birmingham Museum of Art, the Davis Museum, the Parrish Art Museum, the Portland Museum of Art, the Miami Museum of Contemporary Art, The Smithsonian Museum Cooper Hewitt Library, the Yale Beineke Library, the Neuberger Museum of Art, le Fondation Cartier pour l’art Contemporain, La Coleccion Jumex, and La Collezione Maramotti, among others. She has been represented by Jack Shainman Gallery since 1989 and lives and works in New York.

    THIS EVENT IS FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
