Arriving in mid October artist LEO’s art practice is installation based and employs a diverse range of media including; video, photography, text, sculpture, textiles, light and projection. Here are a few words from LEO: What I’m most looking forward to is to be able to concentrate predominantly on developing my own work, within a setting relevant to my interests, dramatically different to anything I’ve experienced before and without the distraction.
LEO will set up community-based projects to look at and develop ideas around the themes of art and the environment, based upon the interests and knowledge of the local community. These themes will become the basis for all community and educational based projects he undertakes during the residency.
LEO Welcoms eveyone to his first Open Studio event on Saturday and 12 and 13 of November, 2-4, and weekdays 14-18 of November (by arrangement with the artist). email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Phone: 01434 240562.
