Ester Roi

"Although nature stirs my curiosity, it’s the quality of color and how it changes that offers a perpetual challenge. How far can color be pushed? Nature’s subjects always take a backseat to color, which filled my childhood with magic in the form of colored pencils, crayons, and oil pastels. After years of working with traditional paint media, I happily returned to the immediacy of those “color sticks”. The technique I invented, where wax-based media is softened or melted on a heated drawing board, is the perfect method to achieve the smooth gradations and dissolving hues that permeate my art. Flowers are my favorite vessel through which I express my vision of a brilliant universe.”
