Leonie Barton names her work by the found objects with which they were created. Photographing ephemeral art, made only from what is found in the moment and on the ground, Leonie assembles either or both natural materials and litter to create a new image. The artist looks for harmony and balance in the space and in the detail. The artworks are left behind for others to experience (unless they are made of manmade materials), to look at their world a little more carefully, to perhaps see familiar things in an unfamiliar way. The original work of art is eventually demolished, leaving only the photograph as evidence of its existence.
“To present the familiar in an unfamiliar way, to draw attention to what is sometimes ignored in our haste to travel through life. To encourage people to slow down and look at their own everyday world a little more carefully, to nurture and preserve it and to remind the viewer that all is impermanent… even us,” she says.
