Leonie King

[Not a valid template]

Leonie has been a lecturer and an organiser of exhibitions in Galway such as Western Artists and Akin. She was a founder of Impressions Print Triennial. Her work is in many private and public collections. Since college she has travelled extensively spending time in South america, India and Morocco. Foreign images and colours are brought home and blended with those of the irish landscape; it's patterns, textures and mists.

An awareness of the past transparently overlaid on the present is part of the underlying motion of her work and pertains to the sense of eternity, stretching both backwards and forwards. The work is an endless balancing of dynamics and of colroured texture over variant coloured texture. Her imspiration comes from an interaction of the emotional with reflections of the surrounding area, both present and past. The effervescent colour changes of the sea and land transpose themselves into multi-layered prints that are a response to a communing with soil, rock and that which ekes out an existance on and underneath the surface of the earth.
