Oliver Clegg

Oliver Clegg has gained a reputation as a multi-faceted artist who creates meticulous two and three-dimensional works. A masterful draughtsman and skilled painter, Clegg is a purist when it comes to working with natural light and obsessive about the quality of his materials whether he be painting, drawing, etching or wood carving. Paradoxically Clegg is also conceptually minded, playing with language, narrative and memory and drawing from symbolism and surrealism in his practice. He paints on unusual recycled surfaces old drawing boards, pages from books and diaries, panels from wooden chests. In 2008  he had a critically acclaimed solo exhibition at the Freud Museum, London and participated in the Busan Biennale, S.Korea (2010).
