Sue Leeming – Foreign Bodies
|New Zealand born WA artist Sue Leeming allows process and nature to guide her practice creating moments of synergy where her internal and external worlds collide. “I revel in the freedom of paint and find myself on a journey of exploration and surrender as I relinquish control and fear of the unknown and embrace the process and fluid nature of the medium.”
It’s in this place of painterly freedom that a unique space is created calling forth the subconscious world of the artist to connect with her external lived experience. These paintings respond to notions of synchronicity and connection to the land.
Sue attended The University of Auckland, Elam School of Fine Art and majored in printmaking graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and Post-Graduate Diploma in Fine Art in 1995. She immigrated to Perth, Western Australia in 1998.
