Leonardo Drew and Blaffer Art Museum

Existed: Leonardo Drew
May 16 – August 15, 2009
Blaffer Art Museum

Existed presented sculptures and works on paper created over the last twenty years by New York- and San Antonio-based artist Leonardo Drew. Throughout his career, Drew has been continuously engaged with the cyclical nature of existence. Made to resemble the detritus of everyday life, his formally abstract but emotionally charged compositions have an aesthetic authority and metaphorical weight that are unique, transcending time and place in a celebration of things eternal. These works range from the intense drama of his sculptures and installations of the 1980s, to the epic sweep of his massive wall-bound tableaux of the 1990s, to the ethereal language of his paper casts of the early 2000s. Add the poetic intimacy of his recent works on paper, and Drew’s practice can be described as a journey toward enlightenment, full of reprises and returns as well as new beginnings.
