Jimmy Leslie Windows at Garmany Show: "Suburban King"

Artist Statement:

I love to get out of the studio whenever possible to take part in the tradition of plein air painting.  There’s something about hitting the road with a small paint box in the same way the Impressionists did; just my supplies and a desire to connect with nature.  The figure may sometimes be present, maybe a vehicle, but most times they serve to populate the image rather than dominate it.  Either way landscape provides me the opportunity to capture places both near and far while offering the challenge of dealing with changing light and a host of other problems that are specific to the genre of landscape painting.

Sometimes these paintings made on location stand on their own and other times they form the basis for larger paintings that begin to push the boundaries of representational imagery. The paintings that stem from these studies often share the qualities of topography and form dictated by color rather than the reverse.

Ultimately I look for these images to reference the locations they are based on rather than a strict verbatim translation; in this way they become a record which is much more personal.
