Leslie Kerby is a New York based interdisciplinary artist. Kerby's work focuses on the life of social narrative and explores how it changes when experienced personally and collectively. Echoing the vast changes of her subject matter, she employs collage, drawing, painting and printmaking in order to capture how individuals use identity as a form of cultural currency. Kerby's art is in the permanent collection of Columbia University, New York, and Arkansas State University, Arkansas and has appeared at numerous galleries throughout the country. She has been awarded residencies at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in Amherst, VA and School of Visual Arts, in New York, New York.

Beyond her personal practice, Kerby also acts as a guest curator, most frequently with Project: ArtSpace, and as member of BRIC Arts | Media and Norte Maar, both in Brooklyn.

Leslie Kerby was one of 13 artists to make unique variants at the Garrison Art Center for the UV Portfolio shown at Matteawan Gallery in Beacon, NY, Nov-Dec. 2013

There she employed gouge, stencil, monoprint and experimental inking with the brayer to produce mysterious compositions.

A studied comparison among #4 variants reveals elements shifting from one print to the next where you would expect not possible.

For one #6 print, the positioning a cluster of vertical birch trees in the center of a horizontal, smokey band of gray is bold, curious & sublime.
