Nixon Leger’s Solo Exhibit, Atrium Gallery at One Capitol Hill.

An exhibit featuring more than 25 years of captivating artwork created by Nixon Leger, is currently on display at the Atrium Gallery at One Capitol Hill on the main floor of the state’s Administration Building in Providence. This wide body of artwork was created based on the physical and metaphysical world as viewed by Nixon.

“My artwork from the early years is a quest of identity and creativity. This work is based on the philosophy, spirituality, physical and metaphysical world. Since I first began studying art, I have continued to search for unique ways to show my ideas. Through my artwork, I took the “Plantain Tree” from the physical world which I transformed into a metaphysic representation of the human body. My Art is a world of Adventure that I continue to explore.” – Nixon Leger
