Leanne Cowie is a contemporary artist working with repurposed materials and a unique sculptural method.
‘Bloom Where You’re Planted’ has been my most enjoyable series to date. I have developed a sculptural technique using recycled materials that I find much pleasure in working with. The meditative process of repetitively cutting the board produces colourful organic forms that express the joy and the diversity of life. It is a delight to run my fingers through the blooms as they are carefully unfurled and brought to life. explains Leanne
While her practice has explored various art mediums such as pastels, acrylics and ink, Leanne enjoys the more unconventional materials that require more innovative ways of thinking and making. “I sometimes melt and manipulate plastic bags to form an ocean and use cardboard packaging to create a variety of works. I am constantly thinking and experimenting with ideas and new materials.”
Leanne rarely offers her work for purchase. Her art is typically exhibited in museums and at events raising awareness about environmental issues. We are excited to welcome you to KAB Gallery Terrigal to view and purchase these unique and interesting pieces.
