“Ode to Botticelli (there have always been two)” is a striking mixed media artwork by Jackie Leishman. This piece combines elements of collage and monoprint techniques to create a complex interplay of textures and forms. The artwork features abstractly and partially depicted human figures, their forms fragmented and interspersed with other textural elements. The application of various tones of black, grey, white, and touches of color adds depth and dimension to the piece. Some areas are highly detailed while others remain minimalistic, creating a dynamic contrast. The composition is fluid with elements appearing to be in motion across the canvas. This artwork is a testament to Leishman’s skill and creativity in using mixed media to convey a rich tapestry of narratives and emotions. It is an ode not only to Botticelli but also to the power of art to evoke and express the complexities of human experience.
