Doris Leeper: Hard Edges
January 15, 2016 - April 3, 2016
This exhibition brings together a group of dynamic paintings created in the 1960s and 1970s by Doris Leeper from local private and public collections. The exhibition focuses on the different ways in which Leeper’s work presents crisp lines and strong geometric forms. The show includes two loans by West Coast practitioners of hard-edge painting, Karl Benjamin and Helen Lundeberg. By showing Leeper’s works within the context of her contemporaries, Doris Leeper: Hard Edges allows the artist’s avant-garde paintings to be seen within a national context and emphasizes how, despite living in relative isolation, she produced work in keeping with major artists and artistic movements. This exhibition is part of the Art Legends of Orange County initiative.
