LéAna Clifton's latest show of mixed medial original works is inspired by her recent bout with breast cancer and will include many new magenta colored works derived from abstract photography of trains combined with various mixed media to create her one-off, original works.
About LéAna Clifton:
LéAna Clifton is a Marfa based artist that has been working in mixed media and photography for over 12 years. For the last 6 years she has focused almost exclusively on creating small and large scale, long-exposure abstract images of freight trains running through the west Texas desert. Her obsession with large fields of color and contrasting line is clear in this work.
LéAna was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer in Feb. of 2018, and after extensive treatment has been declared cancer free as of May of 2019.
The show will be up through October 2019, which is breast cancer awareness month and also LéAna's birth month.
A portion of the proceeds of this show will directly support metastatic breast cancer research, which historically has received less support, but which is vital to long term breast cancer survival.
An artist's reception will be held at the VELDT Gallery at 125 Highland Ave, in Marfa on Sept. 27 at 6pm.
