This week’s artist: Donna Leighton
We welcome Donna Leighton to takeover the walls and windows of Studio 73 . She tells us about her work and inspirations:
I was born in Harlow where art by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth were given prominent position in the Town Centre. I never forgot these sculptures and have come to realise the importance of access to art for all, not in a rarefied area but in an everyday spot.
My practice is the act of remembering. I sometimes use a mathematical process I call Breeding squares as a tool for recollection. I am a great admirer of the emotional delicacy of the work of Agnes Martin. I enjoy process and repetition. The mathematical element leads me into areas such as Fibonacci in nature, and replication in sea shells.
