Ayla Leroyce is a Colorado native currently finishing up a bachelor of fine arts at CU Denver. She became interested in art at a young age, and picked up a camera after a lifetime of being photographed by her mother. By moving away from digital and into the tradition of black and white film her creative practices have slowed and refined. Ayla’s most current works are rooted in an interest in the collective human desire to document ourselves, as well as the ideas posed by Roland Barthes in Camera Lucida. Her desire is to create surreal and intangible spaces for her subjects to exist in order to remind the viewer of their impermanence. Presently she is preparing to show her work in the 2015 BFA Thesis Show at RedLine in May. Plans for the future include applying to graduate school, getting certified to teach yoga, and getting a cat.
