About the Artist
LINLEY B. LOGAN
DEER CLAN, SENECA
Linley Logan comes from a strong craft background, but his paintings go way above and beyond the standard traditionalist perspective. Through his art, Logan seeks to articulate a blend of traditional philosophies and contemporary lived experience. While an able representationalist, his work is often abstract, difficult to comprehend, but firmly rooted in his Seneca Iroquois traditions. He studied at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Sante Fe and received a BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology. He has exhibited in numerous exhibitions around the country and his work is in a number of collections including the Iroquois Indian Museum.
