Tecosky creates sculpture and installation using traditional glassblowing, neon and screenprinting techniques. Recently, he has taken printmaking to a more sculptural level by exploring collages of 3D glass imagery. He also incorporates found and constructed elements into his artworks.
 
       “Leo Tecosky’s work explores the connections between traditional and modern influences,” said Alan Iwamura, glass studio manager at the Toledo Museum of Art. “We look forward to welcoming him for a conversation about cultural exchange, travel and how these experiences shape his work.”
 
       During the spring and summer of 2018, Tecosky was in residence at Gustavsberg Konsthall in Sweden, and was a visiting artist at STARWorks in North Carolina. He holds a B.A. in Fine Art from Alfred University and an M.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and teaches at various studios and schools both nationally and internationally. He lives and works in Brooklyn, blowing glass and maintaining his studio practice.
 
       The Toledo Museum of Art’s GAPP program highlights the unique nature of the Glass Pavilion by encouraging experimentation with glass in innovative ways. Specifically designed to encourage resident artists to utilize or respond to the TMA collection, this program is uniquely situated to serve both the educational mission of TMA and to promote greater dialogue within both the contemporary glass and contemporary art communities.
