Artadia NYC Exhibition Space presents work by Leslie Shows (San Francisco, 2009).

Using sheet of Plexiglass, inks, mylar, crushed glass, metal dust and engraving, Shows has reconstructed images of pyrite rocks - more commonly known as fool's gold - on thin, reflective aluminum panels.

For Shows, the luminous reflectivity and multifaceted appearance of the pyrite gives visual representaion to her conceptual concern with the various lenses through which we undersrtand objecthood. The resulting paintings appear abstract, yet are photo-realistically constructed.
