June Leeloo, “Nefelibata” May 7th through June 5th 2022
Haven Gallery is honored to present Nantes based artist, June Leeloo, for her third solo exhibition entitled “Nefelibata” at the gallery. “Nefelibata” features eighteen new watercolor paintings that present the artist’s archetypal females, delicate in prose and pose, as they dance through the empyrean strata. “Nefelibata” is a Portuguese term meaning one who walks the clouds. Leeloo has continuously found much of her inspiration from the natural world and all of its ethereal details. “As far as I can remember I’ve always loved coloring, drawing flowers, searching for images in clouds, and beautiful tales from all around the world.” Throughout her new series, one finds themselves enchanted by jewel tone palettes of feminine figures twirling through elements of land and sky. Leeloo’s subjects become one with the flowers and animals that inspired them; creating fantasy stories in watercolor that teem with life and fellowship. Her female figures float through the composition becoming a daydreams main character. About June Leeloo: June Leeloo currently resides in Nantes, France. Her artwork is inspired by artists like Klimt, Schiele, and Pompon.
