Lesley Oldaker, painter and photographer, explores the transient nature, purpose and interconnecting relationships of random moving figurative groupings and their interaction with the space around them.
Expressing a personal response to co-occupying the space communicates a sense of displacement and a question of belonging and relevance within that space.
The work originates from drawing, photographic and printing studies, which enables the abstraction of the essence of form, space and colour for the paintings.
The main medium is oil paint, which communicates more desirably the sense of continual movement and fluidity of the form within the work.
A limited colour pallet, painterly marks on a large canvas enhances the suggestion of mood and place, creating a more engaging visual experience and allows the viewer to explore further, the form and space of the painting.
