Older than the Mountain

Laura Leigh is a fine artist, live painter, stone pigment grinder, and painting teacher based in the Catskill Mountains. As her main medium is oil paint, Laura makes her own palette out of stone pigments that she collects, grinds, and binds to painting medium herself.

In her most recent series, Laura explores the boundaries of realism and abstraction. Capturing the primitive essence of the places she paints, Laura has romanticized traditional landscape painting with what she calls “Fantasy Landscapes.”
 
This exhibition is a reflection on her time spent in the Catskill Mountains, featuring on-site field paintings created with the actual land as paint.
