Face - Eric Legge

  • This is mixed media construction by Festival Artist Eric Legge is approximately 17"x7.5"x3".

  • Artist Eric Legge from Valdosta, GA was working at a developmental center for severely mentally and physically handicapped patients

    when he simultaneously developed a profoundly spiritual outlook on life, and a strong desire to express himself seriously through art. A painter since the age of 3, Legge now creates work that is influenced by nature and his surroundings, incorporating found objects and a bright color palette to illustrate his uplifting personal philosophy. “Being able to think, see and comprehend the world around you, that is a wonderful gift. I guess I decided that painting and creating art is the best way to use that gift,” he says. Eric describes the genesis of his inspiration: “Well,

    it starts in the heart,” he says. “The mind perceives it and the hand gives it shape. I think of it as a trinity, you know – Heart, Mind and Hand.”
