Amie LeGette, Aesthetic Properties of Ascetic Lifestyles (Downtown)


On view October 30 - December 14th
Opening reception 5 – 7 pm Sunday, November 3rd 

Using the word ascetic in a secular sense and accepting the meditative aspects within artmaking, LeGette set to work more emotively on this newest series of paintings. Conscious of the communication of space within abstract painting—the spaces we live in, the spaces we’d rather live in, and the freedom within the spaces between—and of the duality of living in a city so closely surrounded by wilderness, her resulting work is at once atmospheric, mysterious, and quietly haunting.

Amie LeGette was born in 1985 and grew up in Northern California. She received her BFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2010. Her work was recently shown at Michael Strogoff in Marfa, Texas. LeGette currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
