Artist Leah Bartholomew's optimistic and bright artworks are an abstract representation of the beauty found in the landscape and life of her local environment, a response to her daily interactions with her local base, Coolangatta, QLD and Northern NSW.
Leah returned from Melbourne to her home base in Northern New South Wales and Coolangatta Queensland. This work is an ode to that homecoming.
The ritual of daily walks plays an integral part in forming the initial concepts for her pieces. Her vast paintings begin as small torn paper collages, an intuitive puzzle of unexpected colours and feelings that take shape based on the influences of her environment and mood.
These collages may represent the colours of the weather, or how the warmth of the rocks on the beach felt, or the blinding brightness of an electric blue sky.
The colour palette is carefully chosen in response to this and the paper collages then inform the large scale paintings.
Each day is different and her affinity with the landscape provides endless material to respond to.
