Artwork by David Leonard

July 19 – August 25, 2017


David has struggled with alcohol and drugs since he was a teenager, but in 2015, admitted that he had a problem and sought help. Although he has no formal arts training, art has become an important part of his recovery from addiction.


David creates mixed media pieces using found objects, such as discarded car and computer parts. For him, there is something therapeutic about the process of finding and storing these materials, and eventually creating something new from something old and broken.


The subject matter of most of David's artwork - robots - is particularly significant. "When I was drinking, my life became very 'robotic': Every day was the same, and there was no end in sight," David writes in his artist's statement. "The robots are a reminder of who I was, how far I've come, and who I am today."
