Early Telepaths Later re-presents paintings from an exhibition at Dunedin Public Art Gallery in February this year, along with new work. Curator Lucy Hammonds wrote of that earlier exhibition Early Telepaths, saying:
“Leek’s process is instinctual; one of re-working, elimination and experimentation…Colour, composition, saturation, brushstroke, subject-matter, light and framing devices are constantly and consistently being negotiated and defined…These nuances are important, they speak to a process of interrogation – of testing, re-visiting and exploring what it means to make a painting.”
Bang on! To which I’d add, Leek’s making of paintings make us smile. Typically, they explore tropes of still life, land and seascapes, and built structures presented in tones ranging from fluorescent to more muted. Leek’s is a slow-burning evolution, the practice of which is a delight to bear witness.
