“To me, there is nothing quite as visually joyful as the interplay of colors, And color – like time, space or sound – has no beginning or end. The compositional possibilities are infinite,” states Leslie Pilgrim about her acrylic-on-panel paintings. The artist works in series, creating abstracted landscapes in The View, offering floral forms in the Chelsea Series and exploring her palette in the Color Series. She achieves intense effects with layered paint and pristine surfaces.
Leslie grew up in the Twin Cities, earned an MBA from the University of Minnesota, and now focuses on painting and collage at her Minneapolis studio. Her fluid style allows her to create stand-alone pieces that also work together in pairs or groups. She has created installations for the Minneapolis Grain Exchange, Health Partners and NorthMarq Real Estate Services. Leslie’s work is enjoyed in private homes and corporate collections throughout the region.
