Since graduating from Art College, Lesley has developed her style to successfully express herself and explore the complex interactions, transient nature and purpose of people in our continually changing urban spaces.
Inspiration and ideas evolve from events seen in the media and in society generally that evoke strong emotional responses. Her perceptive observations of human behaviour together with her own personal experiences, enhance the emotive narratives of her paintings and often communicate a common sense of displacement, a question of belonging and relevance within our shared environments.
Her process originates from drawing, photographic and observational studies of large public spaces where there is a continual sense of movement within the urban landscape. These studies enable her to abstract the essence of emotion, form, space and colour for the paintings.
Painterly mark making and a limited colour pallet helps evoke a further suggestion of mood and place, encouraging the viewer to personally explore and interpret the painting. - Lesley Oldaker
