Lesley Oldaker - Wishing


Oil on canvas

54 x 54cm

Oldaker’s work is all about how we see ourselves and others within society.

She has developed her style to successfully express her interpretations of the complex interactions of people in our continually changing urban environments.

Inspiration and ideas evolve from events seen in the media and in society in general that evoke strong emotional responses within the artist and with further exploration and expression of these responses, the creative process evolves.

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 all our shared spaces.
