Analogue Interference is a solo exhibition of new work exploring the theme of identity. Leonie re-presents traditional wood engraving in innovative ways and combines it with contemporary print media to reflect how identity is changing in the post-digital age.
Surrounded by a proliferation of images online, Leonie addresses her unease at sharing by blurring, pixelating and introducing digital noise to portraits. Much of Leonie’s work is removed from context: at once embracing the intricacy of wood engraving and creating the potential for much larger images, she uses a tonal range to make systems-based visual narratives.
Leonie digitally disrupts her mark-making and her experiments in process have led to screenprints, photo-etchings and large-scale relief prints that explore the crossover from analogue to digital and back to analogue. These prints have a minimalist aesthetic disconnected from their original identity.
