Hello all, My name is @ellabaudinet and I will be taking over The Other Art Fair today! I am an abstract expressionist painter and will be exhibiting at TOAF in August here in Melbourne. I am excited to share with you some of my processes and thoughts while creating my work 🖤 #TOAFtakeover #theotherartfair #takeovertuesday
Trust the process. Each painting is created entirely intuitively. Taking its own form. Becoming something from nothing. I learnt to paint as a photo realist, focusing on disciplined skill and technique. Though I had mastered these skills, replicating images wasn’t enough. I needed more. I needed to create something entirely from my own being. Something original. Authentic. From then, I simply trusted the process of each paintings creation. @ellabaudinet #takeovertuesday #toaftakeover #theotherartfair
Each person has a unique interaction with my work. That’s one of the most beautiful things about art – it’s so subjective. While one viewer may be at ease, another will be repelled. One will see darkness, the other light. Forms start taking shape as we search for meaning, and which forms present themselves is completely dependant on the viewer. There are so many contrasting elements that meet in the paintings, and many possible interpretations. What do you see? @ellabaudinet #takeovertuesday #theotherartfair #toaftakeover
