Bronwen Sleigh is a visual artist who works in printmaking, drawing and sculpture, taking inspiration from manmade structures set within a wide variety of landscapes. Cross Section showcases a selection of prints and drawings inspired by urban environments in Uganda, Canada and Scotland - some of the locations Sleigh has drawn inspiration from. Sleigh often focusses on the unfamiliarity of foreign places, where street furniture and architectural spaces have subtle differences. The work investigates attitudes to space as expressed through architecture and its relationship to the landscape. It is an intuitive response to her experience of physically existing within these built environments, exploring space rather than describing it, challenging perceptions of the ordinary by presenting it in an unfamiliar way.


Born in 1980 and raised in Mid-Wales, Bronwen Sleigh received her BA from the Glasgow School of Art and MA from the Royal College of Art, where she was selected for a six-week exchange to The University of Calgary, Canada. She has worked for The Royal College of Art, The Royal Academy Schools as a Print Fellow and at Edinburgh Printmakers as their etching technician and collaborating printer. Sleigh now concentrates wholly on her practice and has exhibited widely both in the UK and overseas, as well as attending several artists residencies including The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Canada and Cove Park, Scotland in 2017. Her work is held in numerous collections around the world. Sleigh lives and works in Glasgow.
