Leslie Oliver


(b. 1954. Leeton, NSW, Australia)
First exhibiting at Access Contemporary Art in 1990 (MAY SPACE's former incarnation), Leslie Oliver has had fifteen solo exhibitions with the Gallery. Having obtained both a Bachelor of Arts from Alexander Mackie College of Fine Art (University of New South Wales) and a Bachelor of Arts in Film & Television Directing from the Australian Film Television and Radio School, Oliver's interests have always been twofold. He is a founding partner of the Sydney Film School, after working as a director, editor and consultant for many years, writing and directing 'You Can't Push The River', an Australian Film Commission funded feature that was a finalist at Mannheim/Heidelberg International Film Festival in Germany. Oliver's prolific sculptural practice has been fostered in tandem with his career in Film and is now his primary focus. He has exhibited work nationally in Australia, as well as in Los Angeles and London.
