Additional Information

Artist Statement:

Shelley Mansel's artistic career has been devoted almost exclusively to painting the landscape. She has portrayed many sub-themes within the landscape construct such as the rural/pastoral, industrial, aerial, underwater, and fire, and most recently has explored water ripples and smoke plumes.

Her formal strengths with regard to draftsmanship, colour, composition and luminosity support her ability to restrain the landscape to its most elemental forms. Her paintings demonstrate a timeless and universal quality, yet the beauty of each image also alludes to the inherent epheremal nature of the landscape itself.

Mansel is committed to an artistic practice which examines the natural world and how we, as artist and viewer within this realm of painted invention, can often visualize and find context for our own human reflection.
