Holding Pattern

A solo exhibition of sculptural and animated works by Samael Leopold-Sullivan

What comes after the collapse of a self? Samael Leopold-Sullivan draws inspiration from their recurrent dreams of being haunted by a house, along with their lived experience as a non-binary person. Works included in this show are made of silicone, glass, lead, and light.  There will be light refreshments available at the reception on June 11th.

Samael Leopold-Sullivan creates visceral creatures in dialogue with industrial spaces, deepening self-understanding and reflection within the viewer.  They graduated Cum Laude from Macalester College in 2014 with a B.A. in Studio Art and Environmental Studies, and completed an M.F.A. in Sculpture/Dimensional Studies at Alfred University in 2019.  Active in the Conspiracy of Strange Girls, they also volunteer at the Chicago Avenue Fire Arts Center.  Leopold-Sullivan has outdoor sculpture installed at Salem Art Works and Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum, and their work is carried at the Nokomis Gallery, XII Vultures, and Dare Minneapolis.  Recent solo exhibitions include Un(Mother and child) at the Sears Gallery at Macalester College and Seeking Space at Red Garage Studio.  Currently Leopold-Sullivan is a Teaching Artist at Artistry and a Studio Manager for James Brenner Sculpture.
