Details

CLAIRE BENTLEY-SMITH is an artist who lives and works in South Leeds. Her work as a prop maker and commercial artist has been seen, for example, centre stage at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in the form of a life size replica of The Duke of Wellington statue and her murals and window paintings can be found at many bars, events and eateries across Leeds and beyond. 

UNMANAGED REPROACH looks at more personal aspects of her work as an artist. Over the last year she has focused on making a series of paintings and sculptural objects in response to the societal challenges affecting the Holbeck & Beeston community which in turn became a contemplation of her own experiences of life, growing up abroad then living, working and raising a family in South Leeds. This body of work looks at the debate, dilemmas and difficulties around inner city living in the 21st Century. 

“_Unexpectedly, this process became a catalyst to dredge the remnants of my own challenging childhood and 20s and I found many common themes between my experiences and those of the girls trapped in the street sex trade . . ._” CLAIRE BENTLEY-SMITH

THE EXHIBITION REMAINS OPEN BY APPOINTMENT UNTIL MONDAY 10TH JUNE
