Leslie Gomez-Gonzalez (she/they, b.1998, New York, NY) is a multidisciplinary artist and educator working through ceramics, photography, video, sculpture and drawing. Her practice examines daily routines and regulatory acts of bodily care (bathing, menstruation, eating, dressing, etc), exploring the dynamic between the fragility, resilience, and memory of the body. Working with their own body, as a site and as a given homeostatic system, Leslie explores the cyclical spaces between tension and relief; ultimately seeking to exist within a fluid space that can always be reimagined.
Her work has been exhibited in various shows in Miami, FL including at One World Gallery, Miami Beach Urban Studios, Up2Something Studios, and at the MUSE Art Fair for Art Basel week. She is one/third of the artist collective Comedor Azul.
Leslie holds a BFA in Studio Art, and a minor in Art History from Florida International University (2020). She has since participated in several artist residencies including the Finca Morada Artist-in-Residence program in North Miami, FL, The Orange Door Residency Program in Princeton, NJ, and the Chautauqua Visual Arts Residency in Chautauqua, NY.
