Anyone who’s been in Austin long enough has noticed the city skyline expand both outward and upward — but they’ve probably not watched it transform the way three area artists have. The painters have made a living out of studying and capturing cities across the United States, from Los Angeles to New York and, now, Austin.
For David Leonard, it’s the juxtaposition of manmade buildings with the natural environment that keeps him transfixed. Christopher St. Leger, who studied architecture in school, focuses on the buildings themselves. Daniel Burns likes it all and prefers to capture the rhythm of a city, its movement and flow.
