Eileen van der Merwe - "Irises"
Acrylic on Canvas
W: 1500mm x H: 1200mm x D: 40mm
This work is unframed
I have had a very unique and unusual life being married to a geologist, living in strange places all over the world. All of this has nothing to do with painting; except that all these unusual life experiences have been imprinted on my canvasses. The rich desert colours, the vibrancy of the tropical flowers; all my paintings communicate my connection to the land and nature. Each place I have lived came with its own struggles and adjustments, sights, sounds, smells, textures, peoples and culture. Painting is my way of getting to know my new environment. My ability to communicate all of this through granular sculptural textures, three dimensional application of paint and striking use of colour makes my work unique. The Arabian Gulf, mountains of Oman, and vast expanses of desert are current themes in the organic landscapes I am currently creating.
