Floating Forms by Leah YerpeIllustration // Saturday, 20 Apr 2013
Leah Yerpe is a Brooklyn, New York-based illustrator, capturing images of a dream-like state. Yerpe paints bodies in a variety of different twisting poses, floating or falling into emptyness. Recently previewing her work "Stellify" at The Gallery at Le Poisson Rouge, Manhattan, New York, illustrating the human body in all it's forms has become Yerpe's signature style, "I enjoy using the human figure in my work because we cannot help but project on and relate to it. The bodies in my work are multiploed in different poses...I never pose my models; they have free reign to move in an immediate, improvised dance."
