A Study In Solitude, Femininity and Florals by Clare Elsaesser

Artist Clare Elsaesser brings a unique touch to her paintings by invoking mysterious female figures and delicate feminine emotion with earthy tones and bold brush strokes. Using an unfocused subject portrayed in an abstract pose in the environment, Elsaesser reveals a loneliness in her scenic arrangement that speaks of muted emotions.

The vulnerable subjects are emphasised with delicate floral bouquets, and the careful selection of aquatic and emerald tones make the story within the frame fleeting. Each image is characterised by  a single focus on the subject, lost in thought and oblivious their surroundings, which surprisingly connects to the audience as it mirrors their emotions as they observe Elsaesser’s works.
