Lex Lucius Paintings



Lex Lucius (born 1959, USA) Printmaker, Painter, Sculptor Bachelor of Fine Art, California College of the Arts, 1985 Master of Arts, University of New Mexico, 1989 I live in the Roaring Fork valley just north of Aspen Colorado, tucked into the Rocky Mountains. My life is full of family, painting and horses and my clothes smell of the stable, and on far too many days my boots of the pasture. Less then five minutes from my painting studio is the stable where my wife Aimée keeps her jumping horses and my daughter her pony. When I drive over watch them ride, which I do several times a week, I pass by a field of polo ponies. It’s these ponies that have become my favorites to paint because I love their small muscled bodies and I see such strength and determination in their movements. At the stable our warmbloods are huge muscled yet incredibly calm animals, even in my paintings they have a sureness of movement and a stillness that speaks of this confidence. I try to invoke the feelings I get from these animals but just as importantly I also try to bring the stories and dreams we all carry within us when we think of horses and what horses mean to us all. I am focusing on art I want to see, art that makes me feel. It is my hope that these paintings bring out feelings of comfort and connection in the viewers also. Lex Lucius
