Anna Leyland is a contemporary New Zealand artist working primarily in painting. Utilising pattern making and symbolism, Leyland's works invoke conversations relating to the celebration of diversity and multiculturalism within Aotearoa – a hallmark of New Zealand’s social ethos.
Anna Leyland uses careful masking techniques to create her refined patterns, often layering geometric designs to create a compelling optic effect. The use of metallic paints create a lustre in the work and a sense of opulence. Leyland enjoys translating her design based work to large canvases which make an impact in interiors.
Leyland has successfully exhibited in over 30 exhibitions since 2001. She has completed commissions for Nespresso, The Auckland City Council, Orcon, The Big Hoot and Sofitel Queenstown.
Anna Leyland's pattern based paintings explore cultural symbolism and create compelling optic effects.
