Mary Ann Leitch
MAL's works have brought much attention to the art-viewing public. Her paintings and works on paper are collected internationally. Her themes: “La Femmes” including Ladies, Mini Legs, Luvs paintings & works on paper –“ Exploration” nu-age abstract paintings – “Falling Fruit thru Clouds” paintings & pastels – “Eco-Animal Awareness” mixed med/collage – “3 Beaches” mixed med with attachments/assemblage – “Horse & Rider” photo & digital prints – “Love & War” photo & digital prints - “Mystical Desert” collage & assemblage/wood and multi themed photo compilations including equestrian, city scenes, florals.
She uses color, design and content as powerful yet subliminal stimuli. The hues, shapes and themes are meant to arouse the brain in a harmonious way. The themes vary and she enjoys, thru concentration and physical effort, developing a solid viewing experience in a series that each one requires.
Her body of work is eclectic realism and abstraction that can employ acrylic, pastel, silkscreen, mixed media, light reflecting materials, collage, 3D attachments, assemblage, digital compilations and photographs to produce original works on canvas, wood, metal, paper and Giclee.
