The cyclical nature of life–decay and resurrection–plays a central recurring role throughout Leonardo Drew’s elaborate and enthralling installations and multilayered sculptures, which are often composed of found objects, wood, and fabrics. As gripping as Drew’s large-scale works are, they can be enigmatic to the point of hermetic, forcing some viewers to question the validity of its artistry. Others are captivated by the suggestiveness and mystery of the works.
