Leah Moodie

Leah Moodie is a 2021 BA Painting graduate of the Edinburgh College of Art. Having been brought up in the Orkney Islands and now living and working in Glasgow, Moodie paints in order to navigate her feelings of homesickness anxiety. She creates melancholic visions of displaced domestic scenes: painted onto sheer PVC shower curtains, her works emanate an enticing ghostly lustre. By contrasting realism with painterly mark making, Moodie is both the creator of and participant in her quiet yet resonant dramas. She strives to trigger a sensation of familiarity and nostalgia in the viewer for her imagined narratives that they have never experienced.

Moodie is a winner of the ECA’s Astaire Art Prize and has had work exhibited at Edinburgh’s Hidden Door Festival, the Pier Arts Centre and digitally shown at the Tate Britain.
