In Directions\, Christopher St. Leger chooses the city as the focus in his watercolors. He feels he can exp lore the subtle behaviors of watercolor within this theme. St. Lege r states\, “A city is the runway for the flight of ambition and th e descent into melancholy\, a long street pounded by hopes and frustration\ ; for transforming commonplace into mystery. Because the delicate spilling of watercolor on concrete isn't a gesture of expressionism — it's human vul nerability.”

St. Leger first began to paint his su rrounding city\, when he felt the city and its language were foreign. St. Leger says\, “Until I captured anything in watercolor\, the city remained impenetrable\, like an intensity understood only by others o r\, at best\, a mere set of mappable coordinates. With time\, painting has grown to be an unveiling\, an irony since it is the practice of adding thin layers of pigment. I prefer when watercolor simulates the splattered activ ity of the whole environment\, when it seems a marriage of control and aban don.”

Christopher St. Leger received his BED from Miami University of Ohio in Oxford\, OH in 1995. In 2000\, he went to Budap est\, Hungary to attend Budapest Technical University. St. Leger has been in several group and solo exhibitions in London\, New York and Texas.
