About

Leslie Wilkes’ paintings on canvas and gouaches on paper are an explosion of shape and color. With near perfect symmetry, the colors of these works exhibit an opaque, smooth surface. “Wilkes’ geometric patterns are unique in that their repeated patterns tend to expand outward from the exact center of the composition.” Stimulation of the visual is of great importance to Wilkes, who chooses nuanced but dissonant colors to keep the eye moving around the paper or canvas. Slight irregularities also create subtle shifts in the pattern, as the artist does not use tape or outlines on her works on canvas. “Her geometric abstractions are uniquely her own, a twenty-fist century response to geometric painting explored in Europe and America in the last century.” Originally from Athens, Georgia, Wilkes now resides in the small west Texas town of Marfa. Wilkes’ works are in various private and public collections including eBay, Inc., Palo Alto, the Lannan Foundation, Sante Fe, the Fairmont Hotel, San Francisco, the Rosewood Hotel, Abu Dhabi, and the Four Seasons, Houston.
