Leonie Oakes

Oakes’ works employ strategies of deconstruction and reconstruction of books, photographs and text to recreate a new text.  She is interested in the moment of stillness between the in-breath and the out-breath of the body, the trace the body leaves behind, where endings and beginnings merge in both directions. The story of both intertwined.

The multi-layered processes that Oakes predominately uses are photographic and traditional printmaking techniques.  These are often combined with elements of external seams of thread and frayed fabric.
