Leslie Nolan

Nolan's approach to artwork involves depicting what is felt rather than what is seen. Fascinated by the complexities or ordinary people – their courage, confusion, and resilience – she reveals their vulnerability by focusing on moods, as interpreted by abstracted body language, color and gestural brushwork.
"Many of us cloak ourselves behind a veneer of success and confidence despite situations in our lives which wreak havoc with our emotions. In these artworks I peek into inner emotions as the subjects deal with personal, economic, political and social upheaval. "
