Antoinette Beck
Having worked as an interior designer for many years I recently opened Studio57 to combine my passion for art and design. Flooded with light my studio provides the ideal place to both paint and exhibit.

Taking inspiration from nature as well as the built environment I enjoy shining a light on the 'everyday things' in life. Working on canvas and board, using a rich and varied colour palette, my oil paintings move freely from abstract to photo realism.

By allowing space for intuitive expression my latest body of work can be best described as impressionism. In these paintings I am not so much attempting to replicate the image itself, but rather use colour and texture to convey a mood or feeling. While some are inspired by overseas travel others are based far closer to home, as with the Central Plateau's natural attractions and geothermal sites.

At times raw, unfinished and shrouded in mystery these paintings don't reveal everything to the viewer, allowing them to connect, interpret and so become part of the storytelling.

If you wish to contact me or view the Gallery please email or call for an appointment. I would love to hear from you.
