1956ANDREW LESLIE (born 1956) is a painter/sculptor with a keen grasp of the history and continuum of painting. He currently works in acrylic on anodised aluminium and is able to tailor his works brilliantly to fit site specific locations. His interest in perceptual illusions asks questions of the viewer as to the nature of painting and its relationship to form and sculpture.
Leslie recently arrived in Sydney from Perth WA, where he has had a dozen solo exhibitions since 1992. One of Perth's most respected artists, he has for many years been at the forefront of that city's innovative and vibrant arts milieu.
His work has been acquired in Australia by numerous public collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of Western Australia, Artbank, Homes a Court Collection, as well as the National Gallery of Malaysia and the Galleria Civica D'Arte Contemporanea Marsala, Italy. He has also been the recipient of numerous awards and commissions.
