Pol Ledent

Pol Ledent is an accomplished abstract painter whose abstract work brings to mind the expressive, gestural style of the postwar European Tachism movement. But he is a versatile artist and equally able to embrace figurative work. Both styles have a similar aesthetic runnng through them: colourful and often tonal, but in the figurative work he subtly picks out and emphasises compositional aspects and embellishes them.

Alexander Lee

Alexander Lee is an artist with an unusual geographical trajectory; he hails from the warmth of Australia but now lives and works in the cooler climes of Sweden. His Australian heritage can be detected in the fierce heat of exciting compositions such as 'Bush Fire 1' and 'Bush Fire 2' which are quite unique subjects rarely seen amongst the artists of Londonart. The flaming line of acid yellow trees in the distance are dramatic giving a kick to our usual perceptions. These works may be contrasted with the cold tones of 'Blue Cobbles': a painting also full of movement but more contained and deliberate. In works such as 'Evening Storm' and 'Colour Girl' both hot and cold colours are brought together in a harmonious whole.

Liz Lees

We are pleased to add Liz Lees to our rostrum of talented consummate artists who are truly all - rounders. Liz had her own gallery in Scotland for a while but has shown her paintings widely across Britain. The theatre is a great inspiration to her and she has designed sets for clients such as the Edinburgh Fringe. She works in oils with a palette knife to create relief or on smaller works, where her main aim is to capture movement in the figures. Her choice of subject can be quite unique as in works such as "Night Out in the Rain" and "Rush Hour Collapse", bringing to mind sometimes comic aspects also seen at times in the work of the Italian Futurists such as Balla, who also sought to convey movement through painting.

Martin Leigh

Changes, contradictions and contrasts. The art of Martin Leigh does not sit still in one style or technique, but instead adapts and changes in order to explore the points where the natural and man-made collide. His art shows the change of the season and the effects that this has on the environment around us. Formally a professional photographer, Leigh now devotes his time to making art and has gained a great deal of success, exhibiting widely across the UK and in Germany. In his work a bridge ages and hangs in the point between rustic beauty and collapse. A bubble sits implausibly on the rough centre of an orange flower, waiting to burst. The outline of a fish is blended with the stylised background to create an artificial camouflage. In other works he explored the limits of abstraction, showing the feeling of a choppy sea and a rioting garden foliage. His photography and mixed media skills allow him to explore many themes and ideas and create an incredibly interesting and varied collection of work.

Philip  Lendrum

Born in England in 1957, Philip Lendrum now lives and works in Honk Kong. Describing his work as “rational expressionisms”, he allows the “impulses of the unconscious”, to guide him. “The act of applying paint, layering images on top of one another, involving oneself physically with the surface of the object; creates unconventional formal results”. He says.

Albert Lentacker

Albert Lentacker has been painting portraits for an incredible 50 years. Now 72 years old, Albert has been working as a professional portrait artist since leaving the Royal Academy of Art Saint-Nicolas, Belgium in 1956. "An artist must not only capture a likeness, but also a sense of presence, character and time. To paint people is to create a definite presence on a canvas. The stronger the presence, the more successful the portrait" Albert Lentacker. Now living and working in Belgium, Albert is available for commission.

Tatiana Leony

Glowing from within, with an unusual colour palette; the paintings of Russian artist Tatiana Leony contain individual narratives with a spiritual feel. They are reminiscent of the dream- like Folk Art figures of Marc Chagall and have a decidedly appealing, mystical atmosphere.

Ortega Lérias

Ortega Lerias is a figurative artist working in a variety of mediums on paper. Successfully using mixed media demands a huge amount of knowledge and skill. As the term would imply a variety of mediums are applied to the same ground to create one image. This means that each medium must be practiced individually to gain full understanding of its natural characteristics and qualities. It then must be carefully considered before combining it with another. If like Ortega the artist has a good insight into the materials involved, then some creative and innovative results can be achieved.

Justin Lewis

Justin Lewis creates figurative compositions with subject matter that is very contemporary and imaginative. He succeeds where many fail, in saying something different by way of his choices of just what to paint! He is able to envisage subtle nuances of contemporary experience such as aspiration, Americanisation and working class nostalgia. His painting style appears to employ a flat, graphic style reminiscent of Balthus yet it is realistic enough to be rooted in everyday life.
