Elaine d'Esterre

Feminist Visual Artist – Paintings, Mixed Media and Etchings

Commission Complete

After building up the impasto areas and putting in a glaze-like veil in parts of the water that seeps from the edge where cliff and sand intersect there was another passage that demanded attention. The lower area required rubbing with a smooth cloth almost burnishing the sand with orange semi transparent paint to make the sand appear to glow slightly reflecting land and in a formal sense balance the composition.

The title for this oil on linen, 116 x 58 cm is The Elements at Point Roadknight. Now installed by its happy owners on a wall that looks toward Eagle Rock at Aireys Inlet.

I have been producing oil paintings, mixed media, prints (etching), digital prints and drawings for many years travelling to the Australian outback and overseas for inspiration and further education. My formal education consists of a PhD in painting and a BA in printmaking and my artwork is represented in public and private collections. My purpose and ongoing challenge is to create a gender-balanced and environment-focused iconography within the Western canon of European oil painting. These themes find expression within imagery about time, memory and identity as well as in geomorphology of evolutionary and environmental significance.
