Edmond Léger was born in New Brunswick and moved to the Ottawa area early in his life. Working in wood, soapstone, watercolor and acrylic, his influences include Paul Klee, Gerhard Richter and Wassily Kandinsky.
Edmond Leger is an Ottawa based artist whose work specializes in non-representational painting as well as wood and soapstone sculpture. His body of work is an exploration of that which is fluid, versus that which is interrupted, and how they interact to find harmony. With the use of loose handling and expressive gesture, these paintings strive to show movement and a dialogue between voices, while descriptive colour pulls the viewer into a three dimensional space. These multitudes of voices, made by colour and shape, then tumble and dance with one another, in an effort to create a single song. His work can be found in various Canadian and International private collections.
