Portrait Abstract, Ocean Resin Artworks by Australian Artist Antuanelle.

Portholes to the Ocean
Gemstones, Seashells and Fire.
Antuanelle's artworks spark conversations about the importance of marine conservation—her paintings connect people to the pure beauty of popular beaches and ocean reserves, depicting them as if they were completely untouched by human presence.
Antuanelle is a Sydney-based abstract artist from Siberia. Her artworks are inspired by places she has travelled to, and objects she has collected from those locales: GEMSTONES, PEARLS, SWAROWSKI CRYSTALS and SEASHELLS. 
She has worked with a wide range of art collectors, consultants and interior designers. Her roster of partners includes the famous Channel9's The Block Shop, United Interiors, Bondi Wall, Mosman Art Gallery, Hunters Hill Art Gallery, Australian Maritime Museum, Royal Easter Show and Westfield.

 

Recently, she held solo exhibitions in the Hunters Hill Pop Up and Chinese Culture Centre. There, her artwork won awards and has since been featured on Hunters Hill Art Prize billboards throughout Sydney. 
Using GEMSTONES, PEARLS and SWAROWSKI CRYSTALS to adorn her artworks, Antuanelle highlights how precious natural beauty is to humanity—she intentionally erases any traces of human presence to impart the feeling of a completely wild and pure world.

 

Her signature combination of traditional Russian stone painting techniques with contemporary flow media results in round, aerial portals to another version of our planet.

FUN FACTS FROM ANTUANELLE:


  • Art is my lifestyle

  • After living in Australia for some years, I still behave like a three-year-old when I see the ocean (almost every week though)

  • My most beloved things: a bead-work Christian Icon handmade by my Granny's aunt that she made while constantly praying, and a small Buriat amulet with 200,000 year-old fossil seashells from the Altai Mountains, proving that the mountains were covered by an ocean many years ago.
  • I live on Instagram and Facebook.
  • I adore Ludovico Einaudi, Enia and Avatar

  • My Granny was a spiritual reader

  • Highlight of 2017—my artwork Silence on billboards in Westfield as a Hunters Hill Art Prize Symbol.

  • I love sharing my inspiration. Sign up Here! 

  • I am strongly against any religious followers who think that women are not equal to men, or who mark other people as infidels if they do not follow their religious code.

Y E S: COFFEE, CRYSTALS, hot yoga, free spirit.
N O P E: Small talk, religious dogma, societal expectations. 

 

Nature and light are my strongest motivators in my life. Like my morning coffee, they uplift my energy and allow it flow. 

I work with liquid materials because they move like an ocean. They are immediately responsive and live their own life—they do not allow ‘do overs.’ Just living in present—here, now.  There is nothing better than two colored streams forming a waterfall over the edge of the canvas."

Marie works within three distinctive series: Azure Portholes, Portals to the Ocean, and Dreaming — Butterflies.  ARTWORKS
