Zoe Ellenberg Artist Statement
My current paintings consists mainly of tropical landscapes.
Lush tropical, mountain and seascapes are powerful images in my work. I am inspired and influenced by nature.
I love to explore the Rockstars of the Earth's ecosystem. "Rainforests".
I love to travel, discovering this inspirational ecosystem in the unique wilderness of Indonesia, the South Pacific and Australia which have some of the most unique plant life on Earth.
So diverse are Rain forests that virtually every tree you encounter might be a different species, not to mention the thousands of orchids and numerous fascinating plants.
Coral Reefs, Dipterocarp Forests, Freshwater Swamp Forests, Mangroves, Ferneries.
A painters' paradise.
The incredible diverse wilderness that the Rainforest has to offer is an artist's dream, with the abundance of fauna, flora, insects and animals a buzz with activity, blasting with colour.
My approach to application is almost the same as a rainforest as its grows out of chaos, a combination of inks, watercolour, acrylic, soft pastel, oil pastel, spray can and black linear enamel.
Growing and twining on the surface of high quality watercolour paper.
