I HEAR. I TOUCH. I AM
Leora Armstrong grew up on Isle of Islay, Scotland, and currently works in the UK and the USA. She is an interdisciplinary artist, working through her sensorial experiences of place, she consistently navigates this relationship as a reciprocal collaboration for her art practice. Armstrong’s work questions the protean nature of places, meaning, and perceptions, engaging with different concerns, investigating imprint and touch on the landscape through drawing, painting, installation, and literature.
She researches environments – using tangible sensorial mappings of place where she navigates the energy, fragility, and solitude of places, embracing the historical erasures, marks, and rhythms of both physical experiences as well as the sound of a place, sometimes using herself as a vessel of transmission.
She graduated with a BA (Hons) from the University of Art London – Chelsea School of Art and an MFA from School of Visual Arts, New York. Her work has been shown both in the UK and USA.
Leora Armstrong is a Trustee with Checkerboard Films
