Leslie Gabaldon (B. 1964) is a Venezuelan-American artist who works in Miami, FL. She attended The New England School of Art & Design in Boston, MA, and The Art Students League of NY. She focused her attention in new media since 1988 (being among the first artists in the USA to experiment with computer-generated work, shown at Sygraph. 1990 (Boston, MA). Her tendencies towards alternative mediums eventually lead her to embrace photography as the foundation of her work.
Gabaldon’s ideas stem from concepts of sociological memory, especially about women’s issues in the contemporary world. Her fascination with the written word, not only as a means to communicate ideas but also as aesthetic elements, is evident in her body of work, exquisitely merging images and text to form visual poetry. This can be particularly characteristic in her series “Ink on Roses”* that has been successfully received in ArteBa (Buenos Aires, Argentina), Artbo (Bogota, Colombia) Art Miami and Art Huston.
Meticulously focused on the craftsmanship of her work, Leslie has developed a sharp skill in digital printmaking; therefore she controls the production of her photographs, making it a crucial part of her process. As a result, she founded Wynwood Editions, a boutique style contemporary photography printing service for other artists, wynwoodeditions.com. She has shown her work in New York, Miami, Colombia, Argentina, Dominican Republic, and Shanghai. Her work is represented in Miami by the prestigious Dot Fityone Gallery.
