‘SUNDAY WALKS’ LEANNE SHAPTON
‘Sunday Walks’ painted by New Yorker Leanne Shapton are intimate meanders through forested trails. Vibrant colours, intersecting planes and obscured vistas depict one of the most relaxing weekend pastimes.
Serene and contemplative, light reflects and shadows fall. Naive in their application they are emotive of the last day of the week; a day of subdued reflection. Blushy afternoons, dusty dusk, grey wintersolace, autumnal hues and vibrant summer foliage all participate in this meditative collection.
Appearing in The New York Times on the last week of each month, Shapton’s series have been featured on In/Out twice before. Our delight continues.
Characteristically free-styled and spirited Leanne Shapton also works on J&L Books a non-profit publishing house that produces small runs of books by or about contemporary artists.
