Studio Visits / Previews: Mike Leavitt – “Empire Peaks” @ Jonathan LeVine

Posted on November 21, 2013 by K.


On November 23rd, Seattle-based artist Mike Leavitt (interviewed) will be opening his solo show, Empire Peaks, at Jonathan LeVine Gallery where he will be debuting a brand new series of statuary. The fresh work featuring historical figures, each being transformed to a recognizable Star Wars character, is composed of 5-part articulating pieces ranging in height from 12” to 36.”  If you’re in the NYC area this Saturday, drop by and say what’s up to Mike and check out the hand sculpted carved wood and polymer clay works. Take a further look at a preview of the show and a look inside his studio in the photos below... Discuss Mike Leavitt here.
