DENNIS LERI | CONVERGENCE

Esperanza León is pleased to present a selection of work from the last decade by sculptor Dennis Leri in the upcoming exhibition Convergence, to take place at Ashawagh Hall in the Springs Historical District of East Hampton, on Saturday and Sunday, September 21st and 22nd.

Dennis Leri is known for his abstract, welded steel sculptures, often painted in bright hues or discreetly waxed and patinaed. His work distills forms to their most essential components, taking cues on gesture and movement from Bill King, and from Ibram Lassaw the lesson of working not only form, but the space around it as well. Convergence will present ten free-standing sculptures, including smaller maquettes and two just-finished pieces. Providing scope on the matter of scale and how a sculpture evolves (for indoor and outdoor spaces), a small group of sketches will better inform the viewer about the artist’s process. Wall sculptures from three distinct series will also be on view. These are selections from ’50s Optimism, Urban Cadence, and two never-before-exhibited works titled Macular Deception.
