Leonardi’s work richly depicts the twilight of the American landscape, the mythology of westward expansion, and the dialectic between modern and contemporary image, as seen in painting’s relationship to photographic source material. His work traverses American history in a moody visual language that balances nostalgia and skepticism, allegory and realism, looking back to reconsider contemporary culture.”
