selectconnect presents: Julie Leach works with elemental energies, primarily the wind, to explore phenomena of transience, ephemerality and intangibility. Her practice involves facilitating ‘nature as artist’ to create drawings through direct engagement with the processes of the natural world. The drawings may be an entity in themselves or are developed through etching or screen-printing into works on paper or silk. Julie plays with transparency, lightness and movement offering inferences of the state of flux of all things. In this illustrated presentation Julie will talk about her collaboration with nature as artist, the influence of eastern philosophy in her work and how the distillation of personal experience is present in her work. Julie has recently completed an MA in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking at UWE, Bristol graduating with Distinction. She has exhibited at the Broadway Open Art Competition Exhibition in June, the RBSA Biennial Print Prize Exhibition in August where she was awarded second prize and has work accepted for this year’s National Original Print Exhibition at the Bankside Gallery in London in September
