Biography James C Leonard
James Leonard has emerged as one of California's leading abstract expressionist painters. Leonard's emotionally charged landscapes often portray backdrops for figures dramatically suspended.
Leonard grew up in Nashville, Tennessee and has always been drawn to the early expressionists of the 1930's and 40's. The German painter Gerhard Richer has had an influence on his style, approach, and directness.
Working with acrylics on canvas, Leonard uses bold horizontal and vertical strokes and strong color to the viewer's emotions. "Art has always been the focus of my life," he says. "Just as our lives unfold in unique and beautiful ways, so do my paintings have their own unique and individual expression."
