Leah Wolff (born 1984 in Cleveland, Ohio) attended the Rhode Island School of Design, earning her BFA with honors in Printmaking in 2006. Her work has been featured in two solo and many group exhibitions internationally and throughout the U.S.
Wolff views her practice as a way to better understand the workings of our physical environment. The artist translates her research into forms built from ceramics and paper-mâcché. Their slumped postures are in direct contrast with the precision and symmetry in a scientific model. This difference references her own intellectual thresholds when confronting concepts dealing with the infinite. www.LeahWolff.com
