VISUAL ARTIST, EDUCATOR & WRITER
For the past decade, Brooke Leigh’s practice has focused on performative aspect of drawing as a cathartic experience. In this sense, catharsis is the release of internalised emotions, which then becomes the catalyst for understanding and acceptance.
Over the years, Leigh’s work has evolved from gestural charcoal drawings influenced by surrealism, abstraction and manifestations of the unconscious mind to focusing on the sensory experience of mark making through live performance, video, audio, photography, textile and installation.
Leigh has exhibited and performed in Australia, Belgium, Lithuania, Italy, Spain, and the UK.
