This piece was inspired by Oscar Wilde's tantalizing play - the complexity of Wilde's language influencing the complexity of her costume.
Leonard's work generally attempts to address the disenfranchised primarily through the exploration of queer figures, but in this collection Leonard sought to place laurels upon women who have historically been maligned. Be it wrathful goddesses or falsely accused seductresses, their stories are always complex and warrant thoughtful reflection.
