Headshot of David Leonard

David paints cityscapes, landscapes and man-made objects in oil on canvas and on board. The primary subjects of his paintings are twenty-first century man’s working monuments, which represent our culture’s dedication to production and consumption. The paintings are meant to be ambiguous; they can be seen as an indictment of human waste and contemporary alienation, or simultaneously, can be seen as silent tributes to the fundamental tools of our society that we too often ignore. David’s paintings are a culmination rather than a moment – a “long look” at our technology and legacy. David’s work is in numerous private and corporate collections.
