Leonardo Nierman Gallery


About Leonardo Nierman | Leonardo Nierman at UCF | Bibliography

The UCF Library is proud to exhibit its collection of the work of Leonardo Nierman. The collection includes paintings, tapestries, sculptures and stained glass.

Nierman finds an endless source of inspiration for his art in the dynamic forces of nature. Using dramatic, swirling whirlpools of color, darting flame-like wisps and brilliant hues, he captures the intensity and spontaneity of fire, wind, lightning, volcanic eruptions and meteors. His artistic vision is frequently interpreted as cosmic phenomena set in color.
