Leslie Kell creates virtual environments where her photographic images are transformed as they are placed into the spaces and patterns of her designs. She uses natural elements and melds them with architectural structures to create a visual world that invites the viewer into the composition. Recurring themes throughout the works of water, light, and reflection alter perceptions, inspire the senses, and create a sense of wonder, movement, and sound.
The creation of these works begins with the photography, which is done at various events and locations. Each piece may involve six or more photographs that are selected based on a theme, location, color or texture. The overall design is developed through a series of sketches and drawings. The photos are then digitally assembled into the design and are transformed into the artwork .
