Estelle Asmodelle Artist Bio:
My name is Estelle Asmodelle and I am an established Australian Artist, with a long history of painting that goes back to the 1970's. I started painting as a small child, and usually won the school art prizes and first exhibited at the "˜Berrima District Art Show,' at the age of 10. After leaving school I started painting abstract pieces while studying towards a physics and maths degree at Wollongong University, during this period I started creating large canvas work, many of which were displayed at public arts events. My first solo exhibition was at "˜Wollongong Regional Art Gallery,' (now called the Wollongong City Gallery), and it was entitled: "˜The 26 Cent Exhibition,"˜ for people we required to pay 26 cents to enter, while each work cost a total of 26 cents to create. The eccentric show lead to many group shows in the region and also in Sydney, mostly at art campuses within various university environments, most notably, "˜Sydney University Art Department.' During my varied career I continued to paint and exhibit, and the large canvas work using synthetic polymer became my preferred method. In the late 1980's I moved to Japan to live and work, and soon afterwards exhibited at the "˜Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum,' as part of the "˜UNESCO International Friendship Exhibition,' in 1991. This lead to commissions, usually from Japanese firms, for my work. During that period I also started the "˜Tokyo Eki (train station) Exhibition,' displaying and sold a considerable body of work in Shinjuku, Ikebukuro and Tokyo train stations as a permanent exhibition, while also contributing in group works within Tokyo's art galleries in Ginza, Shibuya and Ueno. In 2000 I moved to Los Angeles and participated in numerous group shows and sold some larger canvas works. A few years later I returned to Sydney Australia, after living abroad for 9 years, and continued to exhibit in Los Angeles, more recently being a regular contributor at the "˜Los Angeles Center For Digital Art LACDA.' From 2008 I started showing work in solo exhibitions in Sydney, most notably at the "˜Global Gallery,' "˜Gigi Gallery' and several others. Also running solo exhibitions in some regional towns in country NSW, from Berrima to Scone, most notably at "˜Artemis Gallery.' From 2010 I have continued to show and sell work though group exhibitions, one example is the "˜Redfern Artist Group,' of which I'm a member. Also from 2008 I also started creating digital works as well, in conjunction with the physical canvas works. Several important physical abstract works of mine reside in important private collections in Japan and Australia. While the larger body of my physical work that has sold has been to private individuals, while some businesses in Japan and the US have also purchased the work. Although many of my digital designs have been purchased by companies and businesses, for online content since 2008, and many of those designs have been the subject of numerous design awards within Australia, some receiving gold and silver medal placements. Overall my physical work has been exhibited in Tokyo, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Sydney and regional NSW, while the digital work has been seen on the world wide web in many countries. In 2010 I also published my first art book, entitled: "Transience," which is a collection of the canvas work over a period of 20 years, which is thematically ordered and available in most larger bookstores and numerous online stores, from Barnes and Noble to Amazon. In 2014 a second book is planned for publishing, going to all online and selected bookstores, entitled: "Aesthetic in Abstraction," which is a retrospective of my digital works.
