Legler, originally trained in Fashion Design at HTW Berlin and further honed her skills in London, has seamlessly transitioned from fashion to fine arts.

"To me, fabrics are what paint is for a painter," Legler muses, "...a way to reconcile the unknown spiritual world with our tangible reality, a tangible manifestation of the inexplicable."

Her works, characterized by their elaborate use of fabrics treated with paint, dye, and bleach, and their diverse textures, are not merely sewn but crafted with a narrative that stretches across each canvas-like composition.

Since moving to Vienna, Legler's work has taken on new dimensions, integrating materials like automotive tarps and faux fur.

Her artistic expression is deeply influenced by her interests in astrophysics and the spiritual, exploring themes of the universe and the afterlife.

Legler herself describes her work as an exploration of the "mystical" aspects of life, drawing parallels between the vast unknowns of space and the human condition.

"Life is mystical," Legler reflects, "...and therein lies its allure. I'm intrigued by the potency of our minds, the veiled mysteries that science is only beginning to unveil."

Her recent exhibitions, such as "Himmelskörper" at Ladies' Room in Los Angeles and "Garden" at the same venue, showcase her ability to blend color, form, and texture into mesmerizing abstract compositions.
