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.

Leanne Xiu Williams (b. 1995) lives and works on Gadigal land.
She considers painting as a vehicle for change; an encounter that can evoke visceral sensations and catalyse transformation; a language; solace in a world hyper-saturated by images; a medium through which one can consolidate the fragmentation of a lived experience increasingly mediated by technology, and a necessary discourse that participates in the construction of historical narratives. 

Currently her practice involves locating her own visual language within a network of image-making systems, including but not limited to; fine art, photography, cinema, and mass media. In particular she is interested in exploring how painting can evoke sensations that allude to experiences beyond representation, primarily through figurative iterations.
