I want to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land I live and work on, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation.
Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.




About
Leanne Xiu Williams (b. 1995) lives and works on Gadigal land (Sydney).
She is a self-taught painter and Art History graduate from the University of Sydney.
She is interested in exploring how painting can allude to experiences beyond
realism or representation - in particular, how it can evoke memories, dreams and
sensation through its expressive materiality. Her practice explores this across a
range of subjects, including still life, portraits, and figures.
