Leonard Streckfus - Detail 2

Leonard Streckfus was trained as a painter, and then became a master tinkerer and collage artist, primarily making sculptural forms. He uses elements from a variety of retired consumer goods including toasters, bicycle frames, soda cans and old tires, all found in Maryland, to replicate a zoo of animals, fish, birds, and reptiles. He is in constant search for new uses for old things. In this search, he finds lines, hues, and gestalt, transforming the waste, allowing each animal to come to life. Synergy features a series of fish he created specifically for the show.
