Don Li-leger: Counting The Steps Of The Sun
Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey, BC - To Mar 22
This memorial exhibition features late-career paintings and video works by Surrey Civic Treasure Don Li-Leger, who died in April 2019. Much loved and respected, Li-Leger drew energy and inspiration from the natural world, combining his art studies with those in natural history and plant ecology. His painting style evolved from tightly realistic to loose and colourfully abstracted, his most recent works devoted to the “blooming desert” of the American Southwest, where he travelled in 2017.
