Susan Leopold is a sculptor and installation artist living in NYC whose career spans more than 30. Leopold’s most recent work is based on urban dwellings and the interconnections that occur between private, public and intermediary spaces. These intricately detailed miniature worlds merge small-scale models, photographs, mirrors and lights to establish a sense of complex architectural space. Leopold’s sculptural interiors remind us that, as urban dwellers, we are constantly acting as voyeurs to silent worlds outside our personal realms.
Leopold is represented by Elizabeth Harris Gallery and has exhibited extensively internationally and nationally. She is a recipient of The Indo-American Fellowship, the Fulbright Fellowship, New York Foundations for the Arts and commissioned by The Metropolitan Transit Authority-Arts for Transit NY. Collections include The Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Los, Angeles County Museum of Art, Deutsche Bank, Biblioteca National Centrale, Firenze.
Leopold holds a Masters Degree from the Interactive Telecommunication Program in the Tisch School of Arts, New York University, and a BFA from The School of Visual Arts, New York City. She teaches at Parsons the NewSchool of Design and CUNY-Borough of Manhattan Community College.
Susan Leopold’s show “Beyond Silence” at Elizabeth Harris Gallery, NYC, runs through March 28, 2015. Her website is: www.susanleopoldnyc.com
