Lesley Carruthers’ widely acclaimed art is the product of a largely intuitive process, often informed and inspired by the landscapes in which she has lived and worked. Many commissions were undertaken during her time in East Anglia including one for a major piece of public sculpture.
She also appeared in the Anglia TV series ‘Coastal Inspirations’, which featured local artists inspired by the landscape. Her sculpture has been much sought after, often chosen to add a very special kind of visual appeal to a garden or domestic setting.
Returning to her native Scotland in 2010 resulted in an impressive and fascinating new body of work, including some new bronze pieces and abstract paintings, combining colour and movement in ways that convey something different to each person.
Her technique is instinctive: ‘often happening without advance planning or rational thought’. and her creative process is both unpredictable and unfathomable, yet at the same time hugely inspirational.
