You’d never guess that Sydney-based artist Leanne Xiu Williams is self-taught. After studying art history at university, she was inspired to pick up painting during the pandemic, and we’re particularly obsessed with detailed her still-life paintings, often featuring emotive moody shadows and intriguing reflective surfaces.
‘Still life for me is a mode of storytelling, of capturing a transient moment and perspective that others may relate to,’ Leanne says. ‘The objects that we surround ourselves with contain layered histories, yet they also shape us and leave impressions on us.’
