Elaine Kazimierczuk’s landscape work is based on interpretations of intimately-known localities, frequently, in her native Nottinghamshire, but increasingly around Oxford, where she now lives. In her semi-abstract studies of meadows, woodlands and hedgerows, she achieves a tension between looseness and control, which enables her to convey that intricate assembly of untamed beauty. She uses a red ground, which resonates with vibrant overpainting, bringing energy and vitality to her work with her mark-making in imitation of the apparent chaos of the natural world.
Elaine Kazimierczuk studied chemistry at university and taught for many years whilst also collaborating on major sculpture commissions, before devoting herself full-time to painting. In addition to the demand for her landscapes, there is a growing clientele for her portraiture: she was shortlisted for the 2016 BP National Portrait Award with her first entry.
Recent solo exhibitions include: The Jam Factory, Oxford, October/November 2016, Webbs Fine Art, Clapham, March 2015.
