Ashlee Bucholtz is a young emerging artist whose works focus on the underpinning structures and spaces of the human body and mind, in particular what inhibits them. Drawing from complex relationships between the biological and philological spaces of our environment, health and state of mind. Ashlee presents her narrative through paintings and drawings, with ambiguous shapes and spaces, in complementary and unconventional colour. Each painting and drawing, printed with objects, textured material and stencils, is controlled through the opacity of the paint, which allows the viewer to see through the barriers that have been pared and stripped back.
Ashlee was recently the recipient of the Cill Rialaig Artist Residency in Ireland and exhibits nationally and internationally and in Lithgow, her hometown. Lithgow Pottery, Silcock St Lithgow.
