Kingston Art Group Gallery exhibits new work from Lesley Jane Bradshaw.
Since 2014 Lesley has been working directly from her body; using both conventional and less orthodox means of making images to explore the physical composition and presence of the body. Although drawing underpins and informs her practice, she has been experimenting with alternate ways of using the body to form its own images, to create an unsettling separation and to allow it to identify its own voice. Lesley uses drawing, painting, printmaking, collage and cameraless photography to both abstract and create recognisable images to share the experience of this intimate separation.
Lesley Bradshaw obtained a fine art degree at Hull School of Art in 1990 (specialising in photography and filmmaking), and worked in research and documentation focused roles in photographs collections in national museums and galleries including the National Portrait Gallery, London where she was the assistant curator of the Original Photographs Collection. In 2014 Lesley returned to Hull to develop her art practice.
