Wharf Street South is an unframed etching by Glasgow artist, Bronwen Sleigh. It is number 14 from an edition of 30.
Bronwen Sleigh is a multi-disciplinary artist who takes inspiration from industrial architecture, unused and forgotten urban spaces, and environments at the edge of the city. Her work provokes an extended and considered dialogue with these spaces, which she transforms through the processes of her practice. Sleigh’s work explores space rather than describing it, challenging perceptions of the ordinary by presenting it in an unfamiliar way.
Born in 1980 and raised in Mid-Wales, Bronwen Sleigh received her BA from Glasgow School of Art and MA from The Royal College of Art, where she was selected for a six week exchange to The University of Calgary, Canada. She has worked for several arts organisations including The Royal College of Art, The Royal Academy Schools as a Print Fellow and at Edinburgh Printmakers as their etching technician and collaborating printer. The artist has exhibited widely both in the UK and overseas, as well as attending several artists residencies including at The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Canada and at Cove Park, Scotland. Her work is held in numerous collections around the world. Sleigh lives and works in Glasgow.
