Art, Identity & Place

How wild places, deep time and archaeology inform my contemporary art process

Home

Welcome to my Studio/Gallery :  ART, IDENTITY & PLACE  

A space where I fuse together images and create paintings, collage and etchings with a female gaze and environment-friendly focus derived from wild places, deep time and archaeology.

THEMES

Lake Mungo: a site of ancient human habitation as distant as 40,000 to 50,000 years ago.

Demeter & Persephone Revised: re-imagining mother and daughter relationship

The Pilbara: the Banded Iron Rock formation at 3 billion years ago when oxygen entered Earth’s atmosphere and then the early ocean rusted


 

My blog at elainedesterreart.com/blog is like my studio where I record  different stages in my painting and etching processes – artworks in progress.

I explore a possible parallel between Earth’s creative forces and artists’ and poets’ creative processes. These two parallel themes coalesce within the structure of my compositions where I use disguised symbolism, sourced from pre – Minoan art and artefacts, and from art history.
