Dale Leifeste, Artist

The new solo exhibit by Florida artist Leslie Jeffery focuses on her large abstract paintings and the ongoing influence of action painting on her work, as well as color, mark making, pattern and calligraphy.

The exhibit runs March 1 – April 30 at Mirella Cimato Gallery at St. Petersburg Opera.

Artist Statement 
I split my time between Highlands, NC and Largo, Fl, with studios in both locations. Sailboats to Bears, Trawlers to Cabins, Waterfalls to Sunsets – these were my inspiration for a long while. As with so many artists, over time my work became looser, more expressionistic, large and mostly non-objective. I now classify myself as an Abstract Painter.

My works are about the process and feature texture, light or heavy; marks of all kinds; deep colors; patterned backgrounds; drips and various mediums. They convey energy, lyrical or frenetic. They convey mood, serious or lighthearted. I find the painting process exhilarating. I feel successful when I believe the last one is my best one. I am intrigued with the comments and interpretations of my viewers. 

While a few are difficult to plan and execute & others come easily, I usually think “What fun that was!” when I finish.
