Leslie Sandbulte describes her portraits as “people experiencing the rituals of daily life; waiting, thinking, daydreaming,”
She challenges her viewers with the unresolved nature of the figure’s action, allowing them to become a part of the work.
The element of design is primary to Sandbulte. Models are often posed after the surrounding framework is established.
“I seek ideas from Japanese art and the block printers of such Post Impressionists as Toulouse Lautrec, Mary Cassatt and Ambroise Vollard,” she acknowledges.
