Kate Lesli

Kate Leslie, born in Perth Western Australia, is a practicing artist who graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from Curtin University in 2004. Kate has held solo and group exhibitions in Australia and New Zealand and is currently working on a new body of works from her studio at PS Art Space. 

Kate is interested in the intersection of reality and the fantastical, her dreamt-up scapes are places for creatures and characters to inhibit. Often taking inspiration from moments of the everyday Kate infuses the mundane with an ethereal quality. Her work traverses the interplay between light and shadow, reverie and authenticity. She is inspired by myth, archetypes, tarot, peace, symbolic meanings and the human condition. Questioning the boundaries of our world Kate uses her paintings to create new possibilities of what could be, shaping new worlds and dreamscapes. 

In collaboration with Michele Ulrich, Kate’s next body of work will be a multi-disciplinary installation titled: The party is on the inside. The artists will run a series of workshops in print and sculpture. The works produced by participants during workshops will provide the artists with a collective chronicle that captures peoples dreams and joys; a happiness bank. From these images and concepts Michele and Kate and will re-create sets and dream worlds of shared joys, an archive of happiness! The exhibition will be at the Courthouse Gallery+Studio, Port Hedland and will be a combination of, mixed media, painting, photography, performance, sculptures and still life.  

Kate has worked as a facilitator, mentor, art consultant and curator with community arts organisations and individual artists across a range of sectors. Kate has a passion for working with people and supporting artists of all abilities to access their creativity to develop a strong professional practise while delivering high quality contemporary art.
