is creating CONTEMPORARY ART

patron
I am an artist building a creative community that focuses on contemporary art issues and art theory. In this space you will gain access to my contemporary art practice and the thinking and making that goes into that. I will share information about contemporary artists, art history, feminism and how I understand and define what art is and what it is for. I will be sharing personal essays and material related to my art practice and patrons will have the opportunity to collect my art, as well as visit me in my studio in the Hudson Valley near New York City.

ARTIST STATEMENT & BIO

Leslie Fandrich is an interdisciplinary artist interested in feminist issues, family relationships and embodied experiences.

Deploying materials and processes like clothing, blankets, fabric, stitching and sewing, Fandrich directly connects to the notion of a craft object as a signifier for deep psychological memories of mothers and mothering. At the heart of her practice are the boundaries of the female body and how it is in relationship to others and to our domestic spaces. Her objects rest within the surreal and the uncanny. This position complicates the reading and allows room for questions such as how the human form is both dynamic and evolving and the liminal nature of a body. The material choices for her objects stand in opposition to a patriarchal tradition in art and make more space for a feminist voice.

Leslie’s work has been exhibited at Boston University Art Galleries in Boston, MA, The Seligmann Center in Sugar Loaf, NY, Gallery 66 NY in Cold Spring, NY, Braithwaite Fine Art Gallery at the Southern Utah Museum of Art in Cedar City, UT, Chris Davidson Gallery at Regal Bag Factory in Newburgh, NY, Catalyst Gallery in Beacon, NY, and Milkweed in Sugar Loaf, NY, as well as other venues and gallery spaces in the Hudson Valley. In 2016 she co-edited and contributed writing and artwork to Identity & Anonymity: An Artful Anthology. She is a member of the Orange County Arts Council and regularly participates in the Open Studio Tour and local art events.

Leslie received a Master of Fine Art from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, MA and a Bachelors of Fine Art from the Alberta College of Art and Design in Canada. Born and raised in Canada, Leslie has lived most of her adult life in the United States. She lives in Warwick, NY with her husband, two children and a Boston Terrier named Bowie.
