Leah Saulnier : Special Featured Artist
Leah Saulnier calls herself the “Painting Maniac”, and for quite good reason. She’s clearly deep into her creative process most of the time, and even when in that process the results of her work reveal a mind that is as unique as anyone could imagine.
From her biography I learnt much about Leah Saulnier, “BECAUSE THEY CAPTURE SCENES EMBEDDED WITH PROFOUND MEANINGS, MIRTHFUL MEANDERINGS AND UNTOLD STORIES OF EVERYDAY LIFE DEPICTED WITH A WINK, LEAH SAULNIER HAS BEEN TOLD THAT HER PAINTINGS HAVE THE FEEL OF FAR SIDE MEETING NORMAN ROCKWELL.”
Please take your mind out of the gutter – this is not what it appears
“SHE CONSIDERS HERSELF A SURREALIST PAINTER WITH INFLUENCES FROM MANY OTHER GENRES. SHE ALSO SEES HERSELF AS A WRITER-BY-PAINT WHO IS OCCASIONALLY INFLUENCED BY SUCH WIDELY FAVORED AUTHORS AS O. HENRY, SHIRLEY JACKSON, LEWIS CARROLL, TO NAME BUT A FEW. HER ART IS LACED WITH EXPRESSIONS OF HUMOR, HINTS OF THE MACABRE AND ELEMENTS OF SURPRISE. ALSO IN HER WORKS, LOOK FOR THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SEEMINGLY UNRELATED EVENTS, THE CONVERGENCE OF THE ABSURD WITH THE RATIONAL, THE ROLE OF MACHINES IN THE WORLD OF PEOPLE, THE CURIOUS APPEARANCE OF ANIMALS IN UNUSUAL SURROUNDINGS. “
Surreal? Maybe. Or maybe you have no elephants in your rooms.
I love Leah’s interpretation of Hitchcocks movie “the birds” – the movie always gives me the shivers but Leah’s work makes me see the hillarious side!
Well, don’t you have a frog in a jar???
See if you can work this one out!
Don’t we all know someone like this when driving? Notice I did not say a “man”
I never knew she painted me. HMmmm!
“SAULNIER, BORN AND RAISED IN THE WEST SUBURBS OF CHICAGO
AND THE DAUGHTER OF AN ARTIST-MUSICIAN COMES FROM A LONG LINE OF STORYTELLERS. THIS HERITAGE SHOWS IN HER ART.
SAULNIER HAS BEEN A RESIDENT OF SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO SINCE 1992 WHEN SHE FOLLOWED HER PARENTS TO THE CITY DIFFERENT TO HELP RUN A FAMILY BUSINESS. CURRENTLY SHE PAINTS FULL TIME IN A RELAXED COUNTRY SETTING THAT GIVES HER A DIRECT VIEW OF THE MOUNTAINS. “
Yes, even fruit protects its young. Well, in Leah’s world it does!
A Horny Tree. Or better known as a Horned Melon.
Mechanic in your family? Here’s a gift!
Sweet Potato – and Cute.
WTF? Leah’s title, not mine
I love this one – oh my, I adore all of Leah’s art!
This last work I chose for a special reason -:
Leah has had a terrible tragedy strike in her life and I have no right to go into details, but she needs all the help she can get, but I suspect that sometimes she wants to go back to her childhood and escape some of the world’s horrors – I would if I were her.
I am asking anyone with a little heart to please retweet this, G+ it, post it on facebook, or if you are so inclined and adore Leah Saulnier’s works – buy a card or print. You have no idea you will touch her heart and ease some of her burdens.
