�New York born artist Carolanne Leslie was a competitive �gymnast throughout her childhood and teens: her rigid and painful training at the Pre-Olympic level began her interest �the aesthetics of the human body.
With athletic awards and a degree in psychology to her credit, Ms. Leslie focused her energies on visual arts: both painting and photography. She trained formally in Fine Arts at Adelphi University and Germain School of Photography under full artistic scholarship. �She has worked�as an illustrative photographer in the book cover industry and a photographic retoucher. Additionally she has been commissioned for digital Fine Art and paintings for collectors, showrooms, �galleries and store windows throughout New York and Brooklyn.�
Eventually, she felt that two dimensions was not enough to express her concepts and began to develop works in a new medium for her, broken glass sculpture and video performance.
Ms. Leslie explores concepts of unfolding, up heavel, chakra energy and transformation in her new body of work consisting of broken glass sculptures and �poetic avant guarde films. �Recycling materials from industrial environment Bushwick Brooklyn, such as glass, doors, and window panes from demolition sites, she creates eerie and beautiful sculptures with shattered glass, resin and metallics powders coupled with backlit lighting.
