This week when I was in The Rug Studio they had just received their latest shipment of rugs…these unbelievable vibrant and beautiful works of art. They are all pieces exclusive to The Rug Studio and they are luscious.
This is an excerpt from information Becky sent me about the artist.
Brady Legler’s color palette is often as bright and vibrant as any Impressionist painting. Splashes of electric turquoise vibrate against fiery reds. Slashes and spirals infuse the abstract paintings with a sense of movement. The overall effect is emotional and optimistic. People meeting Brady for the first time might think he is reserved, but the paintings tell a different story. “I like to work on big canvases because I like to see walls covered in color.”
His use of acrylic paint and non-traditional application methods give his work a sense of depth and texture. Layers appear on the canvas as paint is slathered on, then scraped away. “I see my paintings the same way I see people—in layers. Sometimes the layers have to be peeled away to see the true meaning.”
The artist, Brady Legler, is a student at the Parsons School of Design in New York and a native of Kansas City. His life, much like his art, is multi-faceted. He began his creative process designing jewelry. The jewelry is sold at high-end retailers throughout the United States and select boutiques.
The Rug Studio is part of the inter sanctum of the design world of Kansas City, a wonderful designer only showroom. I can take you by appointment, or I can bring anything they have to you.
