Liúsaidh Ashley Watt


Liúsaidh 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 focussed on her heritage, returning to the Shetland Island’s where she is originally from, producing a series called Dore Holm which features photography, video, illustration and poetry. For this work Liusaidh has won the Creative Industries Trafford award and has recently been exhibited at MADE IT 2022, Rogue Studios and her solo show Dore Holm at Gallery 74, Waterside Arts.
