Another one of the artists in Beacon Gallery’s current show “Synaesthesia: Abstract Art & Creative Writing” is Anya Leveille. Having been trained as a texture artist at Laguna College of Art and Design, Leveille’s abstract works are focused on how texture and color are related to specific objects or places.
Leveille works on wood panel, and meticulously layers color, texture, and medium to create her striking abstract works. Her works featured in the current show are no exception to her artistic method. She uses various tools for expressive texture and mark-making.
Although all her works that are featured in the current show utilize more traditional media like oil and wax, Leveille is not limited by these materials. In other pieces, she experiments with Venetian plaster, marble dust, natural pigment that has been mined, and crushed seashells, to name a few. Leveille’s list of materials continues to grow, as she explains that there is always something new to discover when working with textures.
All of her works are inspired by places that she has been to or seen, and, as an avid lover of history, she often finds her inspiration while walking through antiquity museums and historical sites. Through her abstract work and impressive use of color and texture, Leveille hopes that the viewer might be able to realize his own discovery.
