Leslie Jeffery, Solo Exhibition ‘FOR THE BIRDS’
TECO Public Art Gallery in downtown Tampa presents ‘FOR THE BIRDS’, a Solo Exhibition of new work by artist Leslie Jeffery. Primarily an abstract expressionist style painter, Leslie returns often to an alternate oeuvre of birds and nests. Speaking about this new work she says, “I’ve long been fascinated with birds and their consistent demonstration of the continuum of life. Each species unique “function follows form” physical characteristics, determine how they find a mate, build their nests, find food and care for and feed their young. Tiny humming bird nests versus sprawling eagle nests, tiny thistle seed eating finches to diving fish catching ospreys, dark black crows to bright red cardinals – all endlessly artistically inspiring to me.” The twenty avian themed works are lushly painted, colorful and dynamic.
