Ones to Watch: Salleigh Olsen

THE ART EDIT TEAM PRESENTS THE ARTISTS ON ITS RADAR RIGHT NOW.

The works of Sydney-based painter Salleigh Olsen are a cure for monotony. The National Art School Graduate has spent almost a decade building up a reputation for herself through solo exhibitions that broadcast her love of colour, expression and contemporary zeal. The content of these works usually centres around the female figure. Salleigh’s subjects are portrayed with confidence, femininity, and an edge of mystery, with her expert use of mixed media enhancing each individual form. Whether it be through subtle typography or bold, expressive lines, the energy and drama of these sophisticated palettes radiates off the canvas, inviting the viewer into the mind of each subject.
