TURQUOISE MEDITATION, 30 X 30 INCHES, OIL

I look for the quiet places within my subjects. Hours of observation lead to these moments. My paintings feel like life in slow motion to me.

ONE LAST CLOUD, 16 X 16 INCHES, OIL

Each time I hit the road in search of new paintings, I feel a reconnection to the landscape and environment. I travel many miles and many hours to find these desolate places. When I arrive, it is always worth the search.

MIGHTY CLIFFS, 20 X 30 INCHES, OIL

The Vermilion Cliffs of Northern Arizona have provided much inspiration over the years. My first time passing the cliffs was relatively unimpressive. This first visit was on an overcast day. On the same road trip I passed by the cliffs on a sunny day and was blown away. Since that sunny day, I’ve returned every year to spend several days studying and observing these mighty cliffs.

LIKE A PASSING STORM 24 X 48 INCHES, OIL

Life in the desert seems elusive. The weather changes so fast, the landscape can change too. A passing storm can turn a bright sunny landscape into a windy, rain stricken, grey environment. I am constantly attracted to this volatile environment.

FACE OF THE WEST, 24 X 16 INCHES, OIL

This painting features a good friend of mine from Arizona, named LeAnn. She has such a classic face and I felt that she is a strong representation of the west, hence the title. The idea behind this piece was to keep everything simple so that all of the focus went right to her portrait.

PLANET EARTH TURNS SLOWLY, 40 X 60 INCHES, OIL

When I am able to get to a really remote part of the desert, a really quiet and calm place, time seems to stand still. The silence is almost deafening. My job is to sit quietly and observe nature. I take mental pictures of what is before me. I take physical notes in my sketchbook to remind me when I get back to the studio. Lastly, I do my best to paint a quick study of my view. The process of picture making is very slow, but I welcome this meditative process.

LOGAN MAXWELL HAGEGE ( 1980 - ) Trailside Galleries is pleased and honored to host its first one-man show for Logan Maxwell Hagege. With this new collection of works, the American Southwest comes to life in a series of figural and landscape works that capture Native American culture juxtaposed with the arid landscape of the desert Southwest. Traditionally trained in a local Los Angeles classic atelier program, Logan Hagege’s interests and ability in fine art were evident early on. Intense art studies involved spending more than six hours a day drawing and painting live models. While at the atelier program, Hagege also studied privately with Steve Huston and Joseph Mendez. Inspiration for his subjects began at an early age with visits to his grandmother who lived in the California desert. Extensive travels and extended stays in various landscapes in the American Southwest also contributed to his repertoire of subjects. Today, his evolution from

landscapes to figure works, and now a combination of both, reflects the natural progression in his art. While only in his early 30’s, Hagege has already become one of the most dynamic and sought after artists in the country. Infused with bold, striking color and angular images, his paintings are resonating across many collector platforms; from the more contemporary minded art buyer to the traditional western art collector. His paintings are in the permanent collection of the Autry National Center, the Booth Western Art Museum, the Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art, and the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. Recent awards include the Artist’s Choice award at the 2013 Coors Western art show and the Gene Autry Memorial Award for the best group of paintings at the 2014 Masters of the American West Exhibition and Sale at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles.
