Best of Degree Show: Lesley Finlayson

Lesley Finlayson has been developing her body of work by looking at the landscape in non representational ways and by breaking free from traditional conceptions. She abstracts the imagery to create something new, which requires the viewer to engage with the work – challenging them to look at  and interpret it individually.

Her time at the City of Glasgow College allowed her to come in contact and communicate with a variety of lecturers, all specialising in their own field. Their words and advice helped her consider different ideas and perspectives as well as pushing her work in new directions.

For her future, she plans on continuing with her volunteering roles in order to gain further experience in organising and teaching art. She will also focus on expanding her knowledge about different mediums, for example by learning new printmaking techniques, develop existing ones and further explore the concept of the landscape.
