Evelyne Ballestra
L'enlèvement d'Europe

2018

$7,000

About

Her work with signs, symbols and esoteric spirituality reflects her passion for the ancient past and represents a symbolic return to the ground from which we emerged. Her work creates a commentary about “beginnings” and the transmission of signs and emotions through visual elements evoking a spiritual essence to our scientific notion of etymology. After studying under Rolf Dürig, Ballestra began her flower series, defined by their distinct bright colors, satiny, silky, vibrating materials and form. Her work is reminiscent of the Fauvist movement, using highly intense color patterns. Her juxtaposition of colors and large canvas allude to a certain freedom that is seen with the Post-Impressionist approaches of Paul Gauguin, Vincent van Gogh and Henri Matisse. Since 1974, Ballestra has exhibited in over 25 major group and solo exhibitions throughout Europe, Asia and the United States.
