Deep within the forest, a beautiful woman finds a serene sanctuary. Body and soul are entwined harmoniously with the tall birch trees encircling her in this mystical hideaway provided by nature. For a fleeting moment the divine connection she feels with the Greater Spirit is revealed in her peaceful expression. Lee Bogle's artistry combines the realistic details of the material world with those of an ethereal one, enabling viewers to share with this young woman the universal experience of this meditative moment. "There is a spirituality in my art that the viewer must interpret for himself. Frequently I paint women whose eyes are closed, as if in peaceful contemplation. I want my paintings to express a depth of serenity that comes only with inner peace." - Lee Bogle

The Artist

Lee Bogle

In the life and career of Lee Bogle, an ilness that required a long recuperative period afforded him the opportunity to become well acquainted with his easel and to discover that time is a gift to be treasured.

Bogle found teaching art in junior and senior high schools a rewarding career for 20 years. "I enjoyed the drawing and painting classes, and I used those years to experiment in the classroom, so that I could pass the things I learned on to my students," he says. "At the same time, I was developing my own painting career, and in essence, working two full time jobs."

When illness struck, he was forced to take a leave of absence from the classroom for a year. "During that sabbatical, I could focus my full attention on being an artist rather than being a teacher by day and a painter by night. It was during that period that I discovered and explored techniques that I employ even today in my work," he continues.

For the past years, his hauntingly beautiful images of Native American women have intrigued a growing number of collectors who eagerly await each new release. The artist appreciates the natural world and his subjects' expressions convey an inner peace, a tranquility of the spirit.

"My studio, which is my home, is my inspiration," he comments. "Floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outdoors in, so that I feel I am part of the seasons. We live on a heavily wooded lot, and our trees are home to countless birds. Because I'm surrounded by nature, it seems natural to apply my watercolor with weeds and thistles."

Bogle's skills lie in this kind of ingenuity as well as in his technical ability. Vivid, realistic detail is juxtaposed with abstraction; media is mixed courageously to create the ultimate effect. Few artists employ such an extensive range: watercolor wash that forms the base; then charcoal, oil, pastels, airbrush, and at times even pencil all work together under his masterful direction. From this careful combination of media is achieved some of the most admired work in the contemporary art world.
