Profile

Lesley Carruthers

Lesley Carruthers’ widely acclaimed art is the product of a largely intuitive process. This is without doubt informed and inspired by the seascapes and landscapes in which she has lived and worked. During almost two decades of working as a sculptor she undertook many commissions. Significant ones led to public sculptures in Essex, and in Colquhoun Square in Helensburgh.

Her return to her native Scotland in 2010 resulted in an impressive and fascinating new body of work, including some new bronze pieces. However, this also led to a step change – from 3D to 2D. As a consequence, she is now working almost exclusively with fluid acrylics and alcohol inks, resulting in a new and exciting range of abstract paintings and digital prints

Her technique in both sculpting and painting is instinctive, basically happening without advance planning or rational thought.  She finds the creative process both unpredictable and unfathomable, yet at the same time hugely inspirational. “Working in abstract allows me to communicate in a different way, without words”.
