Leslie C. Birleson is a conceptual artist whose oeuvre ranges from carved granite and mosaic tile to screen-print and light installations. He has produced a number of large scale installation works including two Art in Public Places works for the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission. "Traveling Light" is installed above the ticket counter in Terminal A at Sacramento Int'l Airport, and his small park-like project titled, "Open Circle" is on Riverside Blvd. near Land Park.
Birleson's "River Series" of large scale oil paintings reveals his emotional response to life along the Sacramento River levees. The seasons bring a change of palette and texture, from the lush rain of winter to the dry heat of summer, but the elements of land and water remain constant along the shoreline.
