Influenced by the artist’s extensive travels through India, Africa, and Europe, Lee Essex Doyle’s jewel-like paintings capture fleeting glimpses of the world. Through mastery of color and rhythm, she expertly depicts landscapes and interiors layered with patterns, textures, and vibrant hues. Essex Doyle’s latest Chimera series reveals her remarkable ability to encapsulate the very essence of a place, whether it be the cerulean domes of Santorini or the lace-like marble of the Taj-Mahal.
The artist’s travels are dedicated to gathering material for her work through photographs, site drawings, and visual observation. Back home in her studio, she pieces these together with her own memories and impressions of a place. For the artist, “A finished painting is the act of fixing in time an impression of millions of feelings, thoughts, images, and longing and like all memories there are so many versions that are true.”
