Art Papers Magazine;Jul/Aug2002, Vol. 26 Issue 4, p17
The article profiles the works and achievements of Alfred Leslie, a filmmaker, writer, and visual artist. He has applied a central set of ideas to both his canvases and his work in film, multilayering, emphasizing multiple points of view, and retaining a strong sense of the viewer, who he values as someone who completes the picture. Art historians and critics recognize Leslie as an important visual artist, and as one of the founding fathers of contemporary figurative realism.
