The visual art of Craig P. LeBlanc pays homage to the people he paints. In widescreen and somewhat distorted angles, he captures the essence of us all in a brief moment in time. For Craig, people that appeal to him become actors, essential players in the worlds he creates. He spends a lot of time working on details that might seem insignificant, but his characteristics remain important to exploring his viewpoint. His exploration of the moment can go wild yet remain centered around many visuals. In most of his scenes, he never wholly prevents you from seeing what is all around---our mind simply fills in the gaps. His strong intent to tell the story and his ultimate skill of making you lose yourself in the details cultivate one's curiosity with Craig's paintings.
