Artists Statement - Leonora Neary

How we experience and view our surrounding landscape varies greatly and can be determined by a myriad of circumstances, personal and otherwise. For me, to experience a particular place consistently, to know it through seasons, through years, through a substantial portion of a life, one cannot but absorb a sense of a place into ones being and into ones memory.

It is invariably a very personal journey where the physical landscape forms the backdrop to ones daily life, where a steady trickle of physical and emotional memories slowly, steadily develops into a visual and mental file, a composite of imagery and experience; the personal documents and snapshots of a place and time.
