Leo’s sculptures are composed of recognizable objects of plastic, metal and wood. The objects are chosen for their color, shape, texture, durability and patina. They are then constructed of stainless steel, brass or aluminum found objects that are welded together.
He grew up near a dump and has played with junk for over 50 years developing his own assemblage techniques. His works are collected by museums and individuals throughout the world. He can work by commission and can use objects from the patron’s past for a more personal assemblage.
