Biography
Born in 1936 in Lodz, Leon Levkovitch is a Polish sculptor. He has a diploma in visual arts from the Applied Arts School in Lodz, he moved to Paris in 1961. His meeting with the gallery owner, Abel Rosenberg in 1969 made his career blossom, as he opened the doors of his Parisian gallery. This place crystallized ideas, experiments, key figures of those days. His work is full of metaphors and mythological references (Ulysses and his raft). The artist explores drawing and painting, but sculpture (in bronze or terra cotta) are his favorite. Leon The sculptor, through 3D has the same concern as he does with the art of painting. His creations follow the same construction procedure of still life. The sense of microscopic detail is synonymous with geometry. Under this angle, the writer Marc Hérissé honors his "human silhouettes, which are often heraldic on which he re-labels other silhouettes". He is capable of highlighting depth, waking up unexpected dreams and enlightening dark memories. The artist also praises beauty, the one of the feminine bust, the perfect balanced curves of a being. Harmony reigns, expression hatches out and gentleness is tempered. He has done several exhibitions: Abel Rosenberg gallery in Paris in 1969, Salon de Mai in 1978, Atelier Lambert in 1984, Mars fair with the Hansma gallery in 1992, Galerie les Singuliers in 1998… Many of his works were purchased by: musées Haïfa in Strasbourg, Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale, City Bank in New York.
