Biography

Massachusetts-based artist Leslie Schomp creates multimedia self-portraits that explore the meeting point between the physical and the psychological, using various nontraditional materials such as embroidered human hair, dollhouse frames, vintage found garments, and pressed flowers. “I am creating a series of drawings and sculptures that act as my memoirs,” Schomp has said. “The work is not a record of exact events but more an examination of relationships, roles, and moments.” Schomp’s chosen materials tend to share an evocative, Victorian quality, and in manipulating them to depict dreamlike, personal mementos, she exhibits a diverse range of expertise in techniques like line drawing, sculptural construction, and embroidery.
