  • About Me: Lesley Oldaker is a Swiss based fine artist using painting and photography as mediums to express her visual language.
    Born in the UK and currently living in Zurich, Switzerland, she has exhibited in group shows in the UK and Switzerland and has recently had 2 pieces of her work shown around parts of London, UK as part of the Bus-Tops Olympiad public art project sponsored by the England Art Council. After achieving a distinction in the Foundation Diploma of Art and Design, UK, she is now studying for a BA Hons in Fine Art Painting.

    Statement
    The current series of paintings explore the transient nature, purpose and interconnecting relationships of random moving figurative groupings and their interaction with the space around them and expressing her personal response to co-occupying the space communicates a sense of displacement and a question of belonging and relevance within that space. Drawing and photographic studies, enable her to abstract 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, a limited colour pallet and a large canvas enhances the suggestion of mood and place, creating a more engaging visual experience, and encourages the viewer to explore further, the form and space of the painting.
