About the artist

Lea BarozziLea Barozzi is a Portland, OR artist whose work has shown in Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, Scotland, and Germany among other places. She is currently a member of the Bad Apple Artist Collective. Her illustrations have been featured on surfboards, skateboards, cd covers, books, jewelry, and apparel. Lea Barozzi's subject matter juxtaposes innocent doll-like maidens with distorted natural imagery and psychological symbolism. When she is not covered in paint, she enjoys exploring the Oregon coast, listening to punk rock, and reading scifi/fantasy. She currently lives in Portland with her husband, her boy, and her pets.

Birds Want My FlowerThe aesthetic world of Lea Barozzi is a purgatorial realm where a living fog sustains a sense of static tension and freezes the emotional states of its subjects in contemplative introspection. It is punctuated by symbolic props that engage the viewer with instant metaphorical recognition and elements of surprise which draw on our love of mystery. It is populated with little maidens and echoes of discarded dolls who are no strangers to loneliness but persevere to find their way in the dark out of the corners they have found themselves painted into.

Lea’s art helps us to explore the perils and peace in the isolation we all find ourselves reluctantly enjoying when no one else is there.

Her canvases are populated with little maidens and echoes of discarded dolls who are no strangers to loneliness, but who persevere to find their way in the dark out of the corners they have found themselves painted into.

"I don’t really talk about my art. I’d rather viewers draw their own conclusion from the images and titles. I want my work to explore the perils and peace in the isolation we all find ourselves reluctantly enjoying when no one else is there."

Lea Barozzi

About the artist - Lea started off as an actress in Los Angeles but, after deciding that acting was not for her, she went back to school where she discovered art. Art spoke to her in a way that acting never had. Now she is much happier painting demons than becoming them. When she is not covered in oil paint, she also enjoys tennis, bike riding and beating her husband at pool. Lea lives in Portland with her husband, her boy and her cat.
