The Thing from the Ocean
Acrylic on paper, 42 cm x 29 cm, framed
Elizabeth Barsham is a major Australian painter, working late in her career. There is no other painter like her in Tasmania and we are fortunate to host an artist of such unique vision and remarkable artistic tenacity.
Influences in her work are the usual Surreal precursors such as Bosch and Breughel followed by Dali, De Chirico, Tucker, Gleeson, Blade Runner and illustrated children’s books but her sublime oils technique and elegant drawing convinces us that these works are woven together in a remarkable world all her own.
