Image of the Day - Elizabeth Jardine

Elizabeth Jardine is a British landscape painter Elizabeth’s work is rooted in nature with a focus on landscape.  Her paintings are frequently unpeopled, meditative, inviting the viewer to drift into the image themselves.

 Each piece has a tangible starting point, a composition developed from photographs and sketches. Once started, memories, paint, and the activity of painting inform the work.

Making each painting involves a struggle for balance between a still, meditative space, and a place of flickering energy and life.  This gives the working process and the finished pieces themselves both tension and harmony.

Elizabeth Jardine will be exhibiting at the Palace Art and Craft Fair at Fulham Palace 16 - 19 May
