Sheena Leach (b. 1985 in West Yorkshire) makes work that explores elements of fiction, the tension between familiar and strange, seduction and alienation. Playing with the mystical and absurd that can be found in the ordinary, she creates hybrid still lives, reconfigured bodies and suggestive, fabricated moments that call attention to binary thinking and the structures through which we view our current world.
Sheena graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2010 and went on to complete her Masters in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London in 2016. Here she was granted awards from the Eton Fund and the Yorkshire Ladies Trust. Based in London, she continues with her photography, writing and installation at Cell Studios.
Recent group shows include SWEAT. at Camden Arts Centre.

Vibrant and visceral, curious and re-imagined, this large-scale exhibition is composed with materials collected from previous constructs from the city of Glasgow.
The artists have created a programme of workshops, live digital drawing, talks and discussion for all ages to get involved with. Their aim is to work individually and as a unit, utilising each other’s skillsets to create an energetic place for the public to engage with over the course of the festival.
With special thanks to the Glasgow School of Art Archives, Clockwise and Ssssstudio.
