Leslie Oliver, Looking Forward, courtesy the Artist and MAY SPACE, Sydney "As a sculptor, I am thinking more and more in the same way as I do about my films, though my characters are seemingly static, they need to have a narrative to generate a sense of life and engage the viewer. A sculptor works alone so the processes appear less apparent however they remain the same; a sketch or thought (a script); collecting and capturing material/s (shoot); assembling them (edit); seeking a narrative, a struggle, a test of character, a story. I want the viewer to connect emotionally with my sculptures and then discover the other ideas within them."
