Artist Statement:
My painting practice is unavoidably linked to my Navajo and Southern identity. For both of my family’s cultures, leaving home is incredibly difficult. It demands choices be made about what to bring with us and what to leave behind. Hunting, fishing, and pets signify a sense of home and belonging in the landscape, making wildlife key to my visual upbringing.

Leah Thomason Bromberg received her MFA from California College of the Arts in May 2014 and her BFA from Cornell University in 2008. Later this year she will be attending “In Kind” Negotiations, a residency for indigenous artists at the Banff Centre. In the spring, she was the recipient of CCA’s Barclay Simpson Award. She has exhibited at Pirate: Contemporary Art in Denver, CO, as well as in Virginia, New York, and California. She grew up in Fredericksburg, VA, and is an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation. Most of her time is spent making oil paintings and dreaming about saving her family from cataclysmic events. Currently she lives and works in San Francisco.
