Drawing upon personal experiences and psychoanalytic theory, Fandrich explores feminism, family relationships and the embodied experiences of women in North American society. Working primarily with textiles, her most recent works of soft sculptural forms call to mind transitional objects, an abstracted female body and the complex relationships that exist between family members.
Leslie’s work has been exhibited at The Seligmann Center in Sugar Loaf, NY, Gallery 66 NY in Cold Spring, NY, Braithwaite Fine Art Gallery at the Southern Utah Museum of Art in Cedar City, UT, Chris Davidson Gallery at The Regal Bag Factory in Newburgh, NY, Catalyst Gallery in Beacon, NY, and Milkweed in Sugar Loaf, NY, as well as other venues and gallery spaces in the Hudson Valley. Her work has been reviewed and featured in Chronogram, D&H Canvas and on Collageart.com. In 2016 she co-edited and contributed writing and artwork to Identity & Anonymity: An Artful Anthology with Jonathan Talbot and Steven M. Specht. She is a member of the Orange County Arts Council and regularly participates in the Open Studio Tour and local art events.
