The Storm Clouds are Leaving
July 16 – September 3, 2022
Tierra del Sol proudly presents Leul Asfaw: The Storm Clouds are Leaving. This is his first solo
exhibition with the Gallery, since joining the Tierra del Sol Art Studio program in 2012. Asfaw
creates lush land and cityscapes that reflect his travels and his interests in the language of spaces and places. He is drawn to color-rich vistas that allow him to express the diverse palettes of natural and built environments.
Asfaw constructs his landscapes with repetitive strikes of colored pencil on paper, often giving his work the feel of a painting. With his attention to color, he thoroughly works the medium, saturating the paper and boldly transforming layers of hues into forms that delineate structure as well as
suggest something more poetic.
