Colorful Exuberance of Nature
Esther Sternberg creates expressive and colorful paintings of landscapes, water scenes, florals and portraits. In her unique contemporary style she brings a rhythmic vitality to her art work and employs the tactile elements of Impressionism. The artist also creates dramatic work in colored pencils.
Sternberg takes photographs of subjects that interest her, whether they are ponds or still life. Then, she loads up her brush and palette knife with oil paint on canvas to bring a rich impasto effect that begs to be touched.
She explains, “I love the pureness of pigment, the richness of oil paint, and its soft texture when I mold it on the canvas. My brushstrokes are a play of intense movement, arranged in dancelike forms.”
Born in Siberia, Russia, Sternberg has traveled worldwide, and currently lives in Staten Island, New York. Her many exhibitions include those at the New Century Artists Gallery in New York, NY and Countryside Gallery, Newtown, PA. She is an exhibiting member of the prestigious National Association of Women Artists organization in New York, NY.
Her art is in many private collections and she has received praise from arts writers and curators. She was featured in Gallery and Studio Magazine with a review by arts writer and artist Wilson Wong.
