Artist Statement
Liúsaidh Ashley Watt

Liusaidh is a visual artist motivated by the experiment of photography, ascertaining fresh ways to express ideas and uses this not only to create a body of work but to investigate oneself. Self-exploration is a prevalent theme within her work, channelling into different subjects and imagery. Her practice consists of self-portraiture and landscapes, often marrying the two creating a co-dependent relationship between the figure and the environment. Liusaidh uses visual codes to expose inner thoughts and past traumas to an audience. Her most recent work and research aims to explore absence, body and place; proposed to be an installation which incorporates tactile elements to provide new ways of experiencing photographic work.
