ag_artist_statement : My photographic work explores ideas of memory, the passage of time, and empty spaces. Using strategies of minimalism and fragmentation I take my viewers into the inner labyrinths of my subjects. Inspired by the notion of The Void, as a way of experiencing contemplation when immersed in these unoccupied spaces, I invite my audience to a timeless place of diffuse spatiality. In the end my main goal is to capture the beauty of simplicity through abstraction or rendering subtle images that emphasize minutiae. I use both digital and film cameras creating simple images and photo collages to produce Archival Pigment Print pieces on a variety of supports such as paper, canvas, or aluminum. Some of my series has also worked as diptychs or triptychs.
ag_biography : Ana Leal was born in the Northeast of Brazil in 1969. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Economics from the Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil and a Masters degree in Marketing from the University of Pernambuco, Brazil. Photography has always been a passion. At age 15, she received a F3 Nikon as a birthday present. Since then, her passion has grown. Self-educated, she decided to become a professional photographer in 2013 when she got a Bachelor degree in photography from the Pan American School of Arts in São Paulo and in 2016 she joined an MFA program in Visual Arts at Miami International University of Arts and Design. Abstract expressionism and constructivism are her main influences. The work of the artist is mainly abstract and marked by the presence of geometric lines.
ag_influences : Impressionism and minimalism are strong influences on my work.
