Faculty Fellow Hope Leeson | Colors of the Land Video
Hope Leeson; History, Philosophy, + the Social Sciences Department; and RISD Color Lab
An installation by Hope Leeson (botanist and part-time faculty for Liberal Arts Science and Landscape Design and Architecture), funded by a Color Lab Faculty Fellowship. The body of work represents a year-long investigation into natural dye colors given by plants indigenous to South Kingstown, Rhode Island. The color palette is an expression of the land’s changing seasons, the terroir, and presents the visual dialect of the land to viewers. On view March 1-April 7, 2023 in the Color Lab Picture Window Gallery at 30 N. Main Street, Providence, RI. View exhibition image gallery.
