ERNESTINE TAHEDL - RCA, OSA
On my recent travels to India, Patagonia and the Antarctic Peninsula, I was moved by the spirituality, immensity and mystery of those lands and the lasting impact they have had on me. Although my recent works do not represent a particular motif or place, I strive for the essence of the place and all that a 'landscape' can imply, not just natural physical landscape, but human landscapes as well. I explore the balance beween the realistic image and the pictorial values for my paintings.
I do not use photographs taken during my travels as 'support material' for my paintings, but rather as a loose inspiration. For me these photographs have a separate identity as I am searching with my camera a personal interpretation of the subjects. A selection of these photos will be included in the show.
