We ADORE the new palette of Jud Keresztesi's Original Oil Artworks and are thrilled to have them now available to you!
A little bit about Jud Keresztesi ...
Jud is a Melbourne artist who studied Art and Design at Swinburne and Interior design at RMIT. With a career spanning 15 + years - she certainly has her signature skills and a true eye for colour and detail well and truly entrenched in her amazing Oil artworks. 'Landscapes' and 'Seascapes' are her speciality building up texture and depth mostly with a palette knife and adding her signature 'real bronze' in her amazing works.
We have 2 original artworks works which have just landed online in a rich warm palette with her signature 'real bronze' added to each work ... you can read a little bit more about that below.
Inspiration for these works are from her time spent by the Yarra River as a young child with her family near 'Pound Bend' in Warrandyte, Vic.
I've asked Jud a few questions about her artworks & background ...
Can you share with us a little bit of your background as an artist?
I have been painting professionally for approx. 15 years. I have worked with galleries throughout Australia and America.
We adore your layered / textured oil paintings – can you share with us a little bit about the process when creating these works?
I use many different palette knives to create my art. In my recent bush river series I have used no brush to create my paintings. I go through phases where I feel a brush is not necessary.
My dad gave me two boxes of real bronze from the UK 30 years ago. It’s very special as the boxes are old and the labels on the box are beautifully made.
I grew up on the Boulevard in Kew opposite the Yarra River. The bush and river was my back yard growing up. We would also frequently have family picnics in Warrandyte and Warburton hence my love for the river and bush.
Your new series of works are available in a smaller size – how different is this to painting on a large scale?
Working on a small canvas is very different. It means you have to be more controlled as there is not much space to be free. The design is different too as are the tools.
Being a finalist in the Sunshine Coast Art Prize in 2015 which was opened by the Director of the Queensland National Gallery. Being one of the 40 finalists out of 500 entrants was a special feeling.
Below are there two works currently available ONLINE NOW.
