Lesley Duxbury was born in the U.K. and lives in Melbourne. She uses analogue and digital printmedia to address issues concerning the atmosphere and its phenomena, which she explores through work that emulates and recreates our experiences and perceptions of it. Phenomenological experiences of extended walks in remote landscapes, during which she takes photographs and makes extensive notes, are the impetus for her investigations. Recent walks in the Canadian Arctic and Iceland have invigorated her concerns about the possible effects of Climate Change. Duxbury is Deputy Head, Research and Innovation in the School of Art, RMIT University. She has exhibited for over 25 years in solo and more than 50 curated exhibitions in Australia, including National Gallery of Australia and National Gallery of Victoria; Seoul; Vienna and Hong Kong. She was awarded the Australia Council Visual Arts Board New Work Grant (2011). Her work is held in all major public collections in Australia.
