LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Australian artist Estelle Asmodelle studied towards degrees in mathematics and physics yet chooses abstract expressionism to express her concepts and ideas. Her style is easily recognisable. Colourful acrylic paint strewn onto large canvases with a palette knife, reminiscent of Pollack, de Kooning, and many others.
Estelle is based on the Central Coast of NSW in Australia. She loves to paint emotional pieces that beckon the inner part of ourselves. She believes longing and desires that we hold are just under the surface can be released easily using abstraction. It is not what is seen in art, but in ourselves, that is art's greatest gift.
Estelle started painting at the age of 5 with her mother, who was also an artist. While Estelle paints abstract pieces in the style of abstract expressionism. Usually, her work is larger canvases and is often inspired by hypnagogic states (the state between being awake and asleep) and takes non-conventional forms designed to challenge artistic symbolism and archetypes.
Estelle lived in Japan for five years and exhibited at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum as part of the UNESCO International Friendship Exhibition in 1991. She also started the Tokyo Eki (train station) Exhibition, displaying and selling work in Shinjuku, Ikebukuro and Tokyo. Since then, she was also involved in group shows in Los Angeles, San Jose, and La Jolla. She continued to exhibit in solo exhibitions in Australia in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and regional areas. Some of her work has also been shown in New York, San Francisco and London.
Estelle has also published a collection of her artwork entitled "Transience," with a second book planned for early 2022 entitled "Abstraction."
