Debris Dance // Danny Leyland

3 April 2020 until 29 April 2020
Arusha Gallery

Arusha Gallery proudly presents a new body of work by Danny Leyland.

Danny Leyland (b. 1994) makes work with a visual language informed by a reading of comparative mythology, folklore, mediaeval romance, and archaeology. Sometimes narrative-led, at other times process-led, his work moves cross discipline between painting, printmaking, sculpture, performance and writing. Since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 2016 (BA Painting), Danny has exhibited internationally in London, Oxford, Edinburgh, and Thiruvananthapuram, India, with highlights including RSA New Contemporaries (2017), Hospitalfields Graduate Residency (2017) and an EMBASSY off-site project Digging (2018). Alongside his own work, Danny directed Vine Box, poetry-led events providing a platform to emerging performers, actors, musicians, artists and writers, receiving funding from the Hope Scott Trust and Scottish Book Trust. Danny now works as an Art and Design Teacher at a Sixth Form College in Cambridge.

Private view: 6-8pm, Thursday 2nd April – all welcome.
Exhibition continues: 3rd to 19th April
