Leuschke received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1998 with a major in Photography and New Media. Currently a studio resident at Review Studios, Leuschke has presented solo exhibitions in Kansas City at Review Exhibition Space (Suburban Stunt Double, 2006), and at telephonebooth gallery (Nowhere now Here, 2005; dumb mobs bomb mud, 2004; and Dictator tot, 2002.) His work has also been featured at Bridge Art Fair, Miami (2007) and the Stray Show, Chicago (2004), as well as in group exhibitions at Fahrenheit gallery, Kansas City; The Bank, Kansas City; and Max Gatov Gallery, University of California at Long Beach. His most recent effort; Disguise the limit uses humor, word play and viewer interactivity to develop many layers of accessibility and meaning. Leuschke says in his artist statement, "I envision my work as a cluster of grapes not grape juice, equal parts granny smith, Smith & Wesson, Wesson oil and Oil of Olay. The viewer's interpretation is an important layer of the work, and it creates as many problems as it solves, but I believe if your're thinking anything about the work you can't be wrong."
