This abstracted landscape features a light blue sky, dark blue water, a brown mountain, yellow earth, white clouds, and a green form across the top. Dark circular shapes are contained within each of these forms, and the entire scene is surrounded by concentric borders, one pink and one red.

The artist’s longstanding practice has undergone numerous evolutions, including the mysterious addition of black, circular shapes that perforate his surfaces. These circles had initially formed along walls of LeVell’s architectural drawings, resembling windows. But this enigmatic visual motif later came to dominate entire compositions, pushing them toward total abstraction.

Michael LeVell’s art offers an intuitive spatial awareness that gives the viewer a glimpse into an abstract articulation of the world around us. LeVell has been prolifically generating works via his distinct visual vernacular at Tierra del Sol, a foundation that champions the inclusion and independence of all people with disabilities, for more than 30 years. While legally considered blind, LeVell uses imagery from Architectural Digest magazine to inform his velvety, tactile drawings of landscapes and architectural structures in layers of saturated colored pencil or acrylic paint.
