Artist's Statement

Glenda LEON

Artist's statement: 


"Art as an incentive to think some essences and truths 

of humanity. Making noticeable the imperceptible. 

Creating coincidences. Showing the relative aspect of 

life. Awake imagination. Sorting out, with a touch of 

poetry, some fragment of the chaos we belong to. 

Making beautiful the thought. To achieve this 

especial balance between concept and the appearance, 

this is for me the mission of my work."
