Leonie Bradley: Peter Reddick Bursary Award Recipient 2018-2019

Leonie has an MA in Multi-disciplinary Printmaking from UWE and is a member of the Society of Wood Engravers. She exhibits internationally and her work is held in public collections including the V&A.

During the bursary, Leonie further developed a matrix using wood engraving and chine-collé, embracing the intricacy of wood engraving while creating the potential for much larger images, using a tonal range to make systems-based visual narratives. She digitally disrupts her mark-making and her experiments in process have led to combinations of screenprints, photopolymer prints and large-scale relief prints. Her work examines the crossover from analogue to digital and back to analogue to reflect how identity is changing in the post-digital age.

This award is made possible by the continuing support from the Lark Trust, administered by the Quartet Community Foundation.
