Leonardo Nierman was born November 1, 1932 in Mexico City, Mexico. 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. In honor of this celebrated artist's 70th birthday, the Special Collections & University Archives at the University of Central Florida Library is showcased Nierman's work on their website and in a special display in their Reading Room.
Through the patronage of several generous donors and Nierman himself, the UCF Library has acquired a noted collection of Nierman pieces. The Library is especially proud of the broad range of the collection, showcasing Nierman's talents in different media including fiber arts, stained glass, bronze sculpture and painting.
Selected Nierman paintings and bronzes from the Library's art collections were on display in the Special Collection Department's Reading Room, 501C, located on the fifth floor of the UCF Library from November 1 through December 31, 2002. We hope patrons who were unable to visit the Library or who want to learn more about Nierman and his work at UCF will enjoy this virtual exhibit.
