Luella Bartley's (b. 1974, Stratford Upon Avon) work is a personal exploration of vulnerability, intimacy, and conflict around the female experience, specifically related to the body, including works on paper in pencil and oil, photographs and sculpture. These different mediums show the intimate process of the investigation.
