Lesley Duxbury


Lesley Duxbury was born in the UK, and has lived and worked in Australia since 1983. She uses print media—Photography and Printmaking—to make works that question our perceptions of the natural environment. Lesley’s research interests include sustainability and the natural environment, in particular the atmosphere and its phenomena, which she explores through work that emulates and recreates our experiences and perception of it. The phenomenological experiences of extended walks in remote landscapes, during which Lesley takes photographs and makes extensive notes, are the impetus for her investigations. She is also interested in the use of text in art and the role it can play in focusing attention and altering the readings of images allowing for a personal intervention and interpretation.
