Statement

Lesley Oldaker is a Swiss based visual artist, who has exhibited in the UK, Switzerland, China, Bratislava and USA.

She observes and explores through painting, the transient nature, purpose and interconnecting relationships of random moving figurative groupings and their interaction within the space around them. By expressing her personal response to co-occupying the space communicates a sense of displacement and a question of belonging and relevance within that space.
The works originate from drawing, photographic and printing studies, enabling the abstraction of the essence of form, space and colour for the paintings. Oil paint, the main medium, communicates more desirably the sense of continual movement and fluidity of the form within the work.

Painterly mark making and a limited colour pallet further evokes the suggestion of mood and place, and encourages the viewer to explore further, the form and space of the painting.
