Review on ARCH2O.com

Great news! I had a wonderful article written on Arch2O.com, a website that reviews and critiques architecture, urbanism, art, and design.

The writer, Aiysha Alsane, says: "Ester Roi’s success lies in how she shares her discoveries with an audience: using a unique technique, she helps the audience see an everyday phenomenon in a refined and new light... Her pieces are studies of phenomena she has observed in nature, an interaction of two objects, a solid and fluid, yet her paintings transport the viewer to a different world. I, personally, won’t ever see the union of rocks and water the same again."

Getting back to flowers after a long hiatus was exhilarating. As you can see, Beneath the Blue, as all my flower paintingsis depicting a daisy below the water surface.

Here's an excerpt from my artist statement that gives you some insight on my vision: "Water transforms everything it touches: hard lines become soft, warm colors cool, solid shapes break down into parts. Realism evolves into abstraction and the ordinary becomes extraordinary. The interplay between these realms is an endless source of inspiration for me."

“Unveiled” Sold

I'm so thrilled my largest artwork to date, Unveiled, sold this morning and is going to a good home in Florida.

2014 has been good to me so far. I'm very grateful!

 

From Big to Small, From Rocks to Flowers

After finishing my largest artwork to date, Unveiled, a rock piece measuring 24" x 48", I've now resumed working smaller and have chosen to do flowers again. 

Below you can see a sneak peek of the artwork I'm about to finish, a daisy underwater, measuring 15" x 20".

Soon I will be working even smaller. I've decided to create more 6" x 6" pieces mounted on 2" Claybords (see picture below). This series was very succesfull and will provide me with a sense of accomplishment as I'm starting another large canvas, a 24" x 48", this time a commission.
