Canadian painter Aleksandra Rdest looks to forms in nature — clouds, cells, sound waves — for a jumping-off point for her large-scale abstract paintings. The translucence she achieves with acrylic gives her pieces a luminous, backlit quality that captivates the viewer much in the way that Mark Rothko’s paintings do.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
