Kris Leathers is a Minneapolis-based visual artist and illustrator finishing his BA in Studio Arts at Augsburg University. The overall theme of his work deals with the physical self, versus, the metaphysical collection of consciousness. Through various motifs, he illustrates a lens into his personal narrative.
Obsession- An idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind. My work is an examination of how line and dot can be used in various forms, through the application of pen and ink to create my desired outcome. Through this collection of work, my theme is the physical self, versus the metaphysical collection of consciousness. With my creative process, comes my obsessive nature for each element of the composition to be exact, which results in various emotions from ambition to exhaustion. Combined with my respect of the formalities and visual variance of geometry, I intertwine myself into the work by showing the viewer the raw obsessiveness of who I am and what I create. The repeated patterns throughout each composition allude to my precise creative practice as well as the exactness of each element that I chose to demonstrate.
