The highlight of the retreat was a lecture and workshop by Leah L. Wong born in Qingdao, China. Leah received her BFA in oil painting from the China Academy of Arts in Hangzhou, China and earned her MFA in painting from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. She currently lives and works in Columbus, Ohio.

Leah takes inspirations from nature, light, plants, and mirrored reflections in water. She combines drawings and cutouts with multiple layers that increase the visual complexity and experience. From multiple perspectives, her cutout and display layouts bring forth mental landscapes that are incorporated into specific sites. Light and shadows add depth to energize viewers’ visual experience, which can be spiritual, psychological, and/or optical.

Both abstractly and metaphorically, Leah’s two- and three-dimensional forms are suspended between concepts and imaginations of time and space. You may remember Leah’s work from the Riffe gallery show earlier this year.
