My abstract works evoke a sense of location and proximity to nature like the ravines and rivers in aerial views of landscapes, wave formations in the oceans, or rock strata in cliffs and canyons. My paintings are a synthesis of references from geography, my immersion in the landscape, and the light which reveals my perceptions of nature. With the use of liqueified color in varying viscosities, edges of forms and color meet, overlap or merge, complement or obliterate each other suggesting the motion and evolution of the natural world. Above all, my works are interactive with light. Shifts of color and iridescent mediums create reflections and forms that vary with the viewer’s vantage point. Color and shadows projected on the wall from the relief works connect the Lecan paintings to their surroundings.
I was born in Cambridge, MA and received my art education at Skidmore College and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. I work in studios at the Eclipse Mill in North Adams and in Waltham. In my abstract paintings I am involved especially with experimenting with color and with new plastics and acrylic resins including light reflective pigments. I have exhibited my paintings in galleries and museums in Boston, New York and other US cities as well as in Canada, Europe and South Korea. My work is in many national and international private and corporate collections. My work is also in many museum collections including the Musuem of Fine Arts, Boston, The National Gallery of Prague and the Ft. Lauderdale Museum of Art.
