Finlayson, Lesley

Lives in Victoria, BC

Artist Statement

Lesley Finlayson begins her paintings outside to experience the scale, the colour, the grandeur and the sounds that surround her. Finlayson attempts to capture a refined, elegant portrayal of the environment. In the studio, without photographs or other points of reference, she revises the paintings by memory, and the presence and connection felt to each particular place. It’s rarely about the geography, but more so about letting the paint dictate. To be out in the natural environment is invigorating to the whole vocabulary of paint.
