Leanne Savory

My work begins with my favorite subject – light, and its inalienable protégé, dark.

At the edge of my vision there is something pushing me, pushing me to see, to seek, to understand. I love to paint the beauty of objects - the hand of human beings and I love to paint the beauty of nature - the hand of spirit. This nourishes my soul.

I find myself frequently mystified and intrigued with the visual displays of light illuminating a subject, it’s intertwined relationship with darkness and the arisal of colour and form. There is more here than meets the eye for us, more than the scientific theories we have been taught. I ponder the following quote and it drives my work - Through Art, a bridge is built between the Spiritual and Earthly worlds  (Rudolf Steiner)

My work endeavours to explore and challenge how and what we see. Can we learn to see the unseen, to know the unknown?
