  2. 2. LEAH HEWSON 2In 2007, Leah Hewson began attending DunLaoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technologydoing the Fine art course in Visual Arts Practice. Shebegan her practice mainly through photography,looking at the movement of water. During her Secondyear Leah’s practice led her to engage with print,immersing herself in her fear of spiders. During theprinting process she experimented with materials,which saw the beginning of the use of wallpaper in herwork. Trying to develop a certain style the wallpaperbecame a canvas for her to research Japanese film andanimation which then carried through into fourth yearwhere the concept of her art changed by becomingfascinated by artists that create surreal and fantasticalworlds, like that of Ashley Bikerton, Mark Ryden andTodd schorr.The impact of the final image has always been animportant part in Leah’s practice. She achieves thiswith the use of scale and colour which is an influencefrom the bold colours of Peter Max’ work. Aftercompleting her BA hons in Fine art, achieving a Firstclass Honors Degree Hewson is currentlycollaborating with the ‘KTcontemporary’ gallery inDonnybrook, Dublin producing work for sale andcommissions.

  3. 3. LEAH HEWSON 3 Artist Statement I am interested in the boundaries between reality and fantasy. I want to explore this space in relation to my own thoughts and imagination as well as elements of the outside world. By using a mixed media approach with paint, ink, markers and stickers on wallpaper, i attempt to move from the mundane materiality of reality into the realm of the fantastical, creating a multitude of alien and mutated forms that are reflected from my own personal being and construct a way of seeing that challenges common perception and experience.
