About the artist

Brisbane artist Leigh Schoenheimer conducts a multi disciplinary practice focusing on seductively coloured paintings and assemblages. Through multi panelled works which offer alternative interpretations to peculiar still life arrangements, Schoenheimer sets up a conversation around what it is ‘to make pictures’ and the role of the artist as mediator in that process. In her own words, she “makes art, about art-making, itself.” Complemented by idiosyncratic sculptures that employ the same visual vocabulary as her paintings, Schoenheimer brings wit, humour and a bowerbird curiosity to hybrid works that engage simultaneously with the aesthetic and intellectual realms.
