Coming Home by Lesley Seeger

Coming Home by Lesley Seeger


A Contemporary Colourist’s Approach to English Landscape

This beautifully illustrated book is the first monograph of Lesley Seeger's career to date. Known for their use of bright and contrasting colour, Seeger's paintings combine the influence of landscape, travel and the natural world with painterly abstraction.

This mid-career retrospective marks a turning point in her development as an artist, as she moves from the imagined landscapes of her earlier floral period to more observed work of the English landscape.

"This is not just a catalogue of her art. It is a description of the mind of a true artist." 
Terry Brett director of Pyramid Gallery, York.

Lesley's work charms, with playful interweaving between a real and imaginary world. The use of bold colour and clever composition combines to convey an individual story behind the work." 
Rachel Brown the Biscuit Factory, Newcastle upon Tyne

This is a hard back book with dust wrapper and contains some 240 images of Lesley Seeger's beautiful paintings and mono prints.
