Visual narratives of capricious nature : Anne Leon

‘Visual Narratives of a Capricious Nature’ exhibition- Anne Leon.

This whimsical collection of work by South African-born Australian Anne Leon represents her passion for textiles. Over the last 30 years, Anne has explored many techniques, including silkscreen and block-printing, painting, batik, shibori and dyeing.

She has earned numerous large commissions, from interior designers, architects and couturiers, both nationally and internationally.

“Most recently, my work draws on the unique beauty of nature, using a combination of innovative plant-dyeing techniques and water-based screen-printing,” comments Anne.

She continues, “The need to implement ecologically sustainable practices and maintain integrity in my work has been the catalyst for my focus: to create artwork, clothing and homewares that embody these principles.

The plant-dyeing is particularly fascinating, as the nuances of mark-making are unpredictable and individual, as each leaf imprints onto cloth, with a kind of botanical alchemy. Each piece is a unique work of art, signed by nature.”

This exhibition opens on 29 March 6pm- 8pm and continues until 15 April 2012
