For Zoe Ellenberg, nature is her perspective, inspiration, and muse. She has a passion for the littoral. Where the reef meets the tropical rainforest. Where mountains swell up from the sea and where the abundance of nature bursts into flower and birdsong.
This passion has led Ellenberg to the rainforests of Cape Tribulation FNQ, Buderim Queensland, Bali Lombok and the Gillis Indonesia, Vietnam and the South Pacific. Corals, mangroves, swamps, forests, ferneries, epiphytes and orchids are her entire palette blasting with colour and life. Ellenbergs paintings grow as the forest does sometimes as a vine organically twisting and turning in linear black enamel forging a leafy path, sometimes as a vapour of shocking colour as an inflorescence, here a drip spill of ink down from the tall canopy, here a blaze of sunset sky or aqua sea or drenching rain.
Zoe Ellenberg paints mixed media, consisting of enamel, acrylic, watercolour, soft pastel , spray can & ink. These are painted on the best handmade watercolour paper, Arches 300gsm Cold Press and framed under perspex. All mediums are light fast and Perspex UV.
