Biography

Ursula Leach is a British artist who trained in fine art at Winchester, Wimbledon and West Surrey Colleges of Art. She is inspired by the chalk landscape of Cranborne Chase and agricultural practices; as global warming takes effect on the landscape that inspires her. Through the use of colour, Ursula expresses her feelings about the land as a comment on current agricultural practices. Ursula also, paradoxically, conveys and celebrates the beauty of colour’s ability to elicit an inner and emotional response in the viewer. Her colourfull artworks have been exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally including Japan and Australia. She has had work in two prestigious London galleries, Marlborough Fine Art and The Redfern Gallery while exhibiting regularly in solo and group shows at Oliver Contemporary, London for the last 15 years, The Art Stable, Blandford for 10 years and The Bankside Gallery, London where she was made a fellow in 1996.


Artist Statement

Through colour, constant editing and paring back I aim to express my feelings about the land either as a comment on current agricultural practises - monoculture, huge denuded fields and fluorescent colours -  this, by definition has a political dimension.  Also paradoxically to convey and celebrate the beauty I find and colour’s ability to elicit an inner and emotional response in the viewer. 


 


Colour is used in a way that is non-literal. Placing colours one against the other is intended to evoke a parallel to the atmosphere of the subject however different that colour is from reality.  Also by radical simplification of shape and composition I hope to stimulate a direct reaction in the audience.


 


The work is intended to be a document as well as an expression.
