Cri De Ceour

February 10th – March 10th

Two person show featuring the work of Leegan and Robert Doucette


Known as a passionate outcry, protest, or appeal, cri de coeur is a call to action emblazoned with reverberating energy. This vein of emotion runs through each of the works in this month’s two-person show at Bash Fine Art. Featuring new works by both Leegan and Robert Doucette, the fervent underbelly of the modern world is reconnoitered with whimsical delicacy, and admonishing veracity. Join us Saturday, February 10th from 6-9PM as artists Leegan and Robert Doucette guide us through an unflinching and capricious evening of protest, jest, and satire. “Cri de Coeur” hangs through March 10th, 2018.

Bob Doucette’s whimsical and highly saturated images come from the world of dreams. Sometimes bordering on psychedelic, his imagery is a product of a decade of theater work which included lots of puppet design and twenty three years in the world of animation. As a young boy he was denied the right to own dolls which propelled him to create his own. The repressed desire for dolls remains a driving force for his doll-like imagery. By tapping into his unconscious thoughts and the collective consciousness he is able to be personal and universal with his themes.

Leegan began drawing and painting at a young age by himself. He grew up moving from one metropolitan city to another—Baltimore, Philadelphia, and New York City; and cultural diversity and experience of dynamic urban life became the major source of his artistic inspiration, along with jazz, hiphop, and graffiti. In 2011, Leegan began to focus on painting cityscapes—a visual manifestation of memories and emotions attached to certain places—and experimented with various styles of realism and surrealism. In 2013, he moved to San Francisco to attend Academy of Art University where he received his first formal art education. In 2014, Leegan moved to Los Angeles and joined Leftbank Art, a corporation that specializes in producing and printing artworks for clients. He currently lives and works as a freelance artist and art instructor in Los Angeles.
