Leigh Ann Coleman creates a contemporary landscape by mapping the social terrain–putting technology and personal scale into synergetic perspectives.
Leigh Ann Coleman was born 1992 in Long Beach, California. She has been living in the Bay Area for the past 5 years and attended San Francisco State University (graduating in December 2014). There, Coleman studied a wide variety of studio arts, and Art History. Though combining all of these studio skills, she creates mixed media art works. She uses textiles/fibers, drawing, painting, digital, and video in her art. Coleman draws inspiration from the minds of scientists, programmers, and designers, using their ideas, putting humanity into cosmic perspectives through synergy, to inform her art works [synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts]. (i.e., Bucky Fuller, Charles & Ray Eames, Ada Lovelace, Steve Mann, and Edward Snowden). Currently, she is working on a series of embroidered textile works that are binary code translations of “friendly recommendations” for movies, books, and music.
