About the artist
Brisbane artist Leigh Schoenheimer conducts a transdisciplinary, contemporary, art practice focusing on colourful painting and assemblage construction. Through multi-panelled, 'expanded', still-life works, Schoenheimer sets up conversations around what it is to make images; making ‘art about art’. Environmental themes often underpin this overarching investigation into representation and interpretation in image making.
Complemented by idiosyncratic sculptures that reference 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.
