“Enchanted Spaces” (Solo Exhibition)

an exploration of earth’s forms, emerging and submerging through nature’s relentless action

Eliane Saheurs drawsEliane-Saheurs-at-Sivarulrasa-Studio-&-Gallery inspiration from nature’s forms, both minuscule and grand. From hidden structures found within rock fragments to large scale rural landscapes, her work explores the power of Earth’s geological forces. Abstracting with rich colour and texture, layering collage and acrylics, Saheurs wields art’s power to invoke the mystery in the ordinary. Exhibition curated by: Sanjeev Sivarulrasa.
