Leeds Film Festival Artist: Biserka

Leeds Film Festival Artist: Biserka
Written by Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired  30/03/2016

Our third artist commissioned to produce one of four Leeds Film Festival posters is Biserka, an embroidery artist from Newcastle, living and working in Leeds.Biserka's work is figurative with strong narrative elements and explores the closeness between the two worlds we all inhabit; the ‘real’ world and that which exists within our own heads. All her pieces are created and sewn freehand, influenced by the stories of classical mythology mixed with a healthy dose of sci-fi and comic culture. The delicacy of Biserka's work contrasts with the subject matter which often celebrates the strange and the melancholic.   This May she will...

Introducing illustrator Louisa Foley; the first of the Leeds Inspired / Leeds International Film Festival poster artists. Louisa graduated from Leeds College of Art studying printed textiles and surface pattern design last year.

This eclectic mix leads me to some strange places but definitely reflect my playful...

Written by Gill Crawshaw  22/02/2016

Gill Crawshaw introduces the ideas behind 'Shoddy', an exhibition of disabled artists’ work."This April Shoddy will bring together work which uses textiles and recycled fabrics in different ways, by artists from across the country. They responded to a call-out for work that challenges negative assumptions of disabled people, in an exhibition that aims to make the work of disabled artists more visible in Leeds. I’m on a mission to raise the profile of disabled artists and to spark some conversations about disability arts, access and inclusion. Organising an exhibition, as well as hopefully being a worthwhile project in its own right,...

Plant Portraits: a cure for our seasonal malaise

Plant Portraits: a cure for our seasonal malaise
Written by Abby Dix-Mason Leeds Inspired  30/11/2015

The rain. The cold. The dark mornings. The dark nights. We find life pretty stressful at this time of the year and welcome any calming influences that interrupt our seasonal malaise.Today these serene Plant Portraits from Kate McGuire's new exhibition at Outlaws Yacht Club helped to take the edge off the Monday blues and got us thinking that we should adopt a plant-like approach to the season. Have you noticed how plants just get on with the winter? There's no grumbling. They sit tight, heads down and stay out of trouble until the sun starts shining again.However, we do appreciate...
