Eric Legge
While some artists paint from their minds or their hearts, Eric Legge seems to paint from his soul. Eric moves slowly and thoughtfully through the life he leads “off the grid” in the Georgia mountains. He spends his days and nights creating beautiful nuanced work out of paint and found objects, revealing a serene appreciation for the details of his universe. He surrounds himself with creatures and objects that he has found by “happy accident.”
Eric had a long and close relationship with his father, Joe Legge, who was a sculptor. The pair shared a wide variety of experiences and always found the humor in life, even during tough times. They challenged each other to create something from nothing.
After studying philosophy and anthropology, Eric worked for a time in a developmental center where he saw his own good fortune reflected in the misfortunes of others. He realized that “being able to think, see, and comprehend the world around you is a wonderful gift.” He decided to use his gift to create art.
Like his world, Eric Legge’s art is filled with light, love, color, and peace. Occasionally there may be sadness, but never anger or bitterness. Even the scraps and discards of the world have their own beauty and value.
