Join us at New Leaf Editions Gallery for “Inner Body” Exhibition showcasing the artwork of Leandro Figueiredo.

Exhibition Description

“Inner Body” invites viewers to contemplate the multiple representations of the body, drawing parallels between Renaissance studies of the human form, portraiture, and the imagery found within butcher shops, inspired by Figueiredo’s childhood experience in his father’s butcher shop where his artistic journey began.

Leandro Figueiredo’s artwork transits between figuration and abstraction representation. Figueiredo’s etching and drawing presents viewers with his unique perspective of conveying more about inner self rather than representing the outward appearance. His representation of inner body is depicted through the lens of someone inside a butcher shop. The art pieces present shattered body, decontextualized in blood and bone.
