Weekly Featured Artist: James Leonard

 
 

James Leonard is an artist interested in abstraction and how contemplation helps us further understand our place in the world. His work explores the processes of painting and exudes his passion for visual communication. These are gestural paintings that invoke emotion, speaking to the artist’s quest to picture meaning. After serving in the Vietnam War, Leonard found painting and since that time has devoted himself to investigating the formal and emotional characteristics of abstraction. Looking into a work by Leonard is like stepping into an unknown world – one encounters a sense of wonder and a viewing experience that travels within layers upon layers of meaning.
