Leah Junquera is a painter from the foothills of the Adirondack park in New York. She received her BFA from SUNY Plattsburgh and is expected in Spring 2021 to receive her masters from UNCG Greensboro. Her ties to home create an exploration of place, ownership and family relationships. Her paintings oscillate between physical landscape and inner space. Through paint, Junquera investigates where expired hopes go; knowing the temporal landscape is the only one she can own.
