Working the Land – Signed Limited Edition Giclee Art Print by Arie Vardi
About the Artist
Arie was born in Chile in 1956.
After graduating in Graphic Design in Jerusalem he became a member of a Kibbutz on the edge of the Negev Desert where he began to experiment with jewellery.
His paintings are mainly landscapes, inspired by a deep connection with the Scottish countryside and in particular with Perthshire and the West Coast. He begins with sketches on the spot and reference photographs.
These are taken back to the studio with the aim to capture the mood and emotion felt when originally contemplating the scenery. This in turn creates a constant change in the work. The elemental form of the land, especially the connective points of the sea and shore or hill and sky, is of particular interest.
Colour and vibrancy are essential to the work and these in turn are inspired by Arie’s Mediterranean roots. Many of Arie’s fine works are in private and public collections.
What a beautiful, bright morning. Green and Blue for miles outside the window.
Have a good week ahead and enjoy this colourful print with your morning coffee and commute.
Sarah grew up in Galloway (South West Scotland) surrounded by peaceful woodland, rugged moorland and beautiful coastline. From an early age her Mother, an art teacher at the school, nurtured her interest in painting.
Anderson graduated from Edinburgh University with an M.A. (Hons) in Fine Art in 1999. A very successful degree show inspired her to commit to painting. Sarah primarily paints in a studio which she shares with other artists.
Sarah’s inspiration is derived from the magnificent Scottish landscape, particularly the west coast. The recurring themes in her work reflect the dramatic effects of weather on the mountains and shorelines.
The changing light and atmospheric effects have provided endless ideas and Sarah seeks to capture something of that. Her palette is strong coloured with a wide tonal range, principally in oils. The physical act of painting is important to her with paint surface a prominent element as she strives for simplicity of form and overall unity. The paintings Sarah has recently completed attempt to envelop the viewer in the prevailing atmosphere.
