Leah Fraser creates lyrical paintings and ceramics that engage with history, magic and the unknown in their metaphorical visualisation of the 'waters of life.' For Fraser, humanity has an eternal bond with nature that crowns our most basic instincts, deeply etched in the symbologies of many cultures. Reacting to an age defined by industrialisation, digitisation and environmental plunder, the artist conjures religio-cultural worlds pivoted on a profound respect for nature, tacitly urging us to reconnect with our roots.
