Leslie Wilkes’ geometric paintings are initially based on graphic design patterns from the 1960’s. Her use of symmetrical arrangements and unexpected color combinations create simulations of kaleidoscopic Rorschach blots. Wilkes’ paintings challenge viewers’ visual consciousness and perceptions with complex and arresting imagery. Similar to ink blot tests, Wilkes's work allows each viewer to see something unique, yet similar. The colors chosen bring to mind spring, and rebirth, and can be interpreted as something yonic.
