Lesley Wamsley – Looking Up


Prismacolor on Canson Mi-Teintes
9×12″, 2019






Lesley Wamsley is an artist living in Brooklyn, NY. She works outdoors, en plein air, making work from direct observation. Her lively and fresh mark-making reflects the immediacy of working outside. The imagery describes the exact moment of observation while being inherently influenced by the context surrounding it. The environment, politics, history and psychology are innate in every circumstance; that is what makes looking at the world and responding forever satisfying.
