Bronwen Sleigh is a multi-disciplinary artist who takes inspiration from industrial architecture, unused and forgotten urban spaces, and environments at the edge of the city. Her work provokes an extended and considered dialogue with these spaces, which she transforms through the processes of her practice. She creates images and objects which resonate with the energy of these constructed lands. Sleigh’s work explores space rather than describing it, challenging perceptions of the ordinary by presenting it in an unfamiliar way.
Born in 1980 and raised in mid-Wales, Bronwen Sleigh received her BA (Hons) from Glasgow School of Art and MA from the Royal College of Art, where she was selected for a six-week exchange to the University of Calgary in Canada.
Sleigh has worked for several prestigious arts organisations including the Royal College of Art, the Royal Academy Schools as a Print Fellow and at Edinburgh Printmakers as their Etching Technician and Collaborating Printer. She has also exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally. Sleigh’s work is held in numerous collections around the world. She lives and works in Glasgow.
