REFLECTOR accentuates the era of Leon Emanuel Black as an artist, a journey that began with his first sculptural works in 2012. The starting component for this season draws its existence out of an unexpected discovery with (of reflecting industrial lights on spilled resin) industrial light reflecting on spilled resin on the floor. Leading to Leon´s personal self-realization narciss moment of his current state as a designer.
For the first time, Leon embraced the challenge of staying present in the moment. Concentrating on crafting out of creativity, rather than necessity, and celebrating his journey as an artist, while concentrating on self-improvements for the future. Reflector took purposely longer to conclude and shows a new experimental perspective to the aesthetic of Leon Emanuel Blanck.
An aesthetic that may not seem 100% like his previous work – with metallic color combinations, hand-paint finishing, and polished & rough appearances – though breathes Leon’s DNA & Anfractuous Distortion philosophy to its core with elements like biker jackets, officer coats, lung clutches, and 5finger gloves.
