Leslie Wayne - Artist Interview

Leslie Wayne came down to visit University of Florida a couple of years ago in conjunction with an exhibition. I fell in love with her gooey, dense and peeled paintings. Julia Schwartz of Figure/Ground interviews Wayne about her artistic training, her painting and her mentors.
 I was certainly aware that the curls and folds and crinkles of paint that I manipulate on the surface of my paintings are like flayed skins (in spite of my use of a full chromatic range). And so I thought it would be the most obvious and natural step to try and dig into their bodies rather than stay on the surface.
