Collection: Leeya Rose Jackson at The Coven

THE COVEN PROUDLY WORKS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH CASS GARNER OF GAMUT GALLERY TO PROVIDE LOCAL, INCLUSIVE ART FOR THEIR MEMBERS

FINE ART FROM LEEYA ROSE JACKSON AT THE COVEN, FEATURED AT THE COVEN IN ST.PAUL.

The Coven opened their doors to 150 Founding Members on March 8, 2018- International Women’s Day. These original 150 bound together in the belief that an intersectional space with humans from every industry, age, and socioeconomic background could exist in the Twin Cities. Their early support has now grown to 400+ members from many industries. 

FEATURED ARTIST Leeya Rose Jackson is a multidisciplinary artist based in Minneapolis, MN, originally from Detroit, MI. Her creative pursuits include painting, filmmaking, illustration, textile art, and graphic design. Her work explores the intersections of identity, particularly Blackness, femininity, and queerness, often featuring celestial and universal surrealism motifs. She has created for Afropunk Music Festival, American Public Media, Sony Music, Giphy, Metro Transit, Outside Lands Festival, Heinz, and The Prince Estate. Her work is characterized by loud, vibrant colors, floral shapes, maximalism, and Afro-futurism.

ARTIST STATEMENT 
"My art celebrates the indomitable spirit of Black Femme Women through a range of mediums, including vibrant portraits on canvas, digital illustrations, and afro-surrealist imagery. In my work, I explore the multifaceted nature of Blackness, incorporating the materiality and cosmic essence of Black pigment in intentional contrast to girlish colors to create textural illusions within my pieces. I use a combination of matte and glossy black paints, including one of the blackest acrylics from Japan, to create "voids" among the garish, audaciously feminine color fields. I also merge the digital and tangible, utilizing graphic design typography and animation alongside traditional painting and printmaking techniques. My latest series, "Loud Minds," delves into the rich, complex, and layered inner truth of Black femmes. As a neurodivergent Black woman, I draw from my personal experiences to capture the turbulent beauty of our diverse mentalities. Through intimate interviews and stunning portraits of fellow Black, neurodivergent women, I celebrate the intersections of Blackness, femininity, and neurodiversity. Through my work, I aim to bring joy and visibility to those who have been historically overlooked and undervalued." - Leeya Rose Jackson
