Fashion Plate: Leigh Viner

What do you get when you take one part line sketch + one part abstract expressionism + a flair for fashion?  The stunning work of Denver artist/photographer/designer, Leigh Viner.  Leigh elevates what could be a simple fashion sketch to fine art by her extraordinary eye for composition, figurative expression and well-placed explosions of color and texture.

Push

Look closely at the women Leigh is painting.  These models aren’t faceless mannequins, each one has a story to tell.  Their faces are full of subtle emotion– vulnerability, longing, confidence.

Perceive

Gatsby

The strength of her work is in it’s simplicity.  She is an artist that understands “less is more”.   In her hands, a simple line drawing becomes a striking portrait with just a few limited dashes of color.

Abstractions Aside
