Lezley Saar’s work consists of large old books that are hollowed out and refilled with small narrative paintings as well as leather-bound book covers or yellowed pages nailed together to form a canvas upon which images are
painted and objects affixed.
The work fixates on duality:  black/ white, male/ female, sane/ insane, natural/ mechanical,  material/ spiritual ... posing questions,  highlighting ironies, celebrating anomalies of nature and embracing contradictions that are philosophical, sexual and emotional.
