Leonor explores through art existential dilemmas and unmasks social anxieties from an aesthetic point of view.Her new series of paintings under the name Soirée serves as a teaser for her upcoming show at Gallery Elverket in Tammisaari, Finland, during next spring.
The featured works depict fragmented stories of events and emotions that were once lived, before, during and after an evening party. Her new works comment on the social pressure of the present days. The constant battle for which we struggle to meet the expected standard while trying to preserve our own identity.
Her work constantly questions the relationship between figuration and abstraction.
She uses deconstructionism as a shock value. The intention is to make the viewer to wonder about the purpose, the fragility and the symbolism of the base ingredients of the image.
