Transitions

Like any good citizen of the world, I wish for peace and prosperity for all. But… for the past few years I have been responding in my paintings to the heightened geo-political tensions here and abroad. I see Danger. I see Hope. Then I see THE TRANSITION back and forth.

"To the casual observer, the work of Leslie Neumann evokes a distinctive paradox. It is both passionate and soothing, powerful and disarming, apocalyptic and transcendent, predictable with an element of surprise. It's a dichotomy of sensations from an artist intent on peering into nature's soul." Lara Bradburn, Tampa Tribune

Wetlands

I moved from New York City, population 8 million, to Aripeka, Florida, a small fishing village with 397 people on the Gulf of Mexico. My home and studio are surrounded by more than 15,000 acres of coastal wilderness. All this beauty has inspired and influenced me as an artist. Every day I’m engaged by its raw, primitive energy.

I'm a landscape painter, but "landscape" is a loosely applied word; what I end up with is hardly any commonplace landscape.

“Like the word love, “landscape painting” is often used as a common-place term, wasted on work of little distinction or feeling. Leslie Neumann’s visions of natural scenery are the real thing. There’s no peace here, no safe hold. Neumann’s landscapes are about life. They celebrate unpredictability and mood. If you want to see the sublime, if you want to see what Florida would be missing without its wetlands, see these pictures by Neumann.” Joan Altabe, Sarasota Herald Tribune
