About the Artist
Lesley works primarily in photo-based media, using a variety of tools including traditional photographic equipment and digital media to initially capture images from which work can be developed. The emphasis within her practice can be found in the physical processes of printing the images onto surfaces which have a direct link to the photographs themselves. Recent works have focused on destruction and decomposition and namely the unique, inherent beauty, which can be captured during the process of decay.
Lesley McLaren was born in Glasgow in 1984. At an early age she moved to Fife with her family and despite a brief stay in Dundee she returned to Fife and remains there at present. In 2004 and 2005 she completed courses at Central St Martins College of Art and Design in London. In 2006 she completed a BA Hons in Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone college of Art and Design in Dundee.
