Drawing inspiration from the changing Fleurieu landscape, Lesley Redgate’s paintings reflect a vibrancy and visual harmony often found in the harsh Australian environment. Inspired by the Australian Modernists and French post-impressionists, Lesley has developed a style which focuses on the subtleties of colour to describe form. Preoccupied with structure and geometry, her work captures the unusual from ordinary scenes recording the history of the area where she lives and has a deep connection to.
