James English Leary

James English Leary is a New York-based artist, filmmaker, and educator whose paired down biomorphic canvases compel a psychological reading, confronting the viewer with “a Rorschach test as a parody of abstraction.” The duality of his works’ objectness and figurative allusions synthesize into a gestalt awareness of authorial subjectivity through his playfully callous material handling. His work has been included in the Whitney Biennial, Greater New York show at MoMA PS1 and the Sundance Film Festival.
