Leslie Song’s paintings suggest parallels between the dream world, the imagination, and reality. The ordinary and mundane experienced in reality transforms into a kind of sublime peculiarity, connecting memories of reality with the mind’s imagination within the dream world. Recurring motifs—such as staircases, rooms, and doorways—act as symbols of a deeper reflection and serve as underlying imagery within her paintings. Representing the fantastic and bizarre in a compelling way she creates works that reflect layers of mystery and an inexplicable desires.
