statement, November 2017

Leo makes quiet, slow artwork. It reveals itself patiently over time and rewards its audience's careful attention.

 

biography, December 2017

Leo Alexander Krukowski is a Canadian artist who was born in 1991. He was named after Leonardo da Vinci and Alexander the Great. He spent his early life moving between the countryside around Ottawa, the capital city itself, and the Thousand Islands region. He is currently living and working in Toronto. He has a degree in visual art from York University.

Artistically, his consistent concerns have been his relationship to nature; privacy, silence, and minimalism; the treatment of history, art, and culture as materials; and the passage of time. Concepts of sacredness and fakeness recur in his work.

Leo works with traditional, natural, and technologically-driven media.
