Sweet Geometry: Esther Stewart

You guys know I love crazy, messy, expressionist paintings.  I mean who doesn’t respond piles of texture and frenetic brushstrokes?  But then sometimes I surprise myself and fall head over heels for work that is full of clean,simple, straight-lined shapes.  Australian artist Esther Stewart masterfully intersects simple forms, a warm palette, and interesting compositions to create softly beautiful geometric paintings.

Stewart’s use of intersecting lines lend a landscape-ish air to her compositions, while the palette keeps the overall feel of each work dreamy and supple.  It’s almost as if we are gazing at vistas made of ice cream..

The way Stewart seems to break down her compositions into such elemental shapes inspires me to see the world in a much more simple manner.  Every space is made up of the same repeating shapes, we just have to figure out how those forms fit together.  There’s a bit of a life lesson in there, to be sure.  All of our lives are made up of essentially the same components– it’s how we fit those pieces together that make our existence our own.
