In the "Gauge" series, Greenleaf arranges trapezoids and triangles in intricate and resonant configurations of color and shape. For me these drawings' most compelling aspect are the points of contact between the individual geometric shapes, their length (one could almost say duration), angle, intrusion, or near misses. This is where energy is transferred and interaction becomes concrete, making the works incredibly intimate, almost vulnerable.
