Leah Sarah Bassett
Leah Sarah Bassett (1983) is a self-taught artist who grew up admiring classic figurative painting. Her style evolves with her personal experiences and is always ongoing. Leah explores the dark sides of life, loneliness, depression, and desperation while also appreciating the beauty in the fragile. There is often an ethereal aesthetic to her work. The atmosphere is usually that of a dreamlike, simple void, so as to focus on the subject, who is usually a woman, and the story she has to tell spoken through her body language and with her eyes. There is much angst in her work. Her style of painting leaves plenty of room for interpretation.
