Leo Bersamina

San Francisco, CA

Leo Bersamina enacts simultaneously with painting, photography and sculpture, sometimes incorporating several disciplines within one work. With a strong sense of materiality, he brings found stones and sticks into his sculptural and wall installations, using their volume and elemental presence to address the most basic formal properties of his art. Representational images of the sky and water (through gouache, watercolor and photo collage) contrast with the visceral qualities of paint and wood. Making keen use of his own life experiences, his works are layered with memory, markers of ethnic identity and spirituality.
