Artist bio

Nel ten Wolde – Biography
Originating from the Netherlands, Nel ten Wolde emigrated to Australia in 1985. Since this move, Nel has enjoyed the possibilities of travelling internationally, particularly throughout Europe, seeking inspiration from different countries & cultures. She has been invited multiple times to take part as artist in residence, working alongside and collaborating with other artists. Whilst in Melbourne, her work is focused on abstract landscape oil paintings in varied sizes. The greatest source of inspiration for her work, has always been nature, evoking emotions of freedom, beauty & wonder. Her extensive travels throughout Australia have had a significant influence on her life and work, in turn, reflected in her Art. The countries’ vast differences in landscapes, open space, colours and outstretched desert plains, supply her with endless inspiration. The country she now calls home.

I create art because...

I like to create something for people to see that is not just a straightforward picture but more a detail of something unusual.

I am different to most artists because...

I work with a variety of different disciplines and experiment a lot. This makes my work change and grow.

When you look at my art, the thing I want you to feel is...

I want to surprise people with what they see, and hope they will take their time to discover the feeling behind it.

The thing I most want to say to non-artists is...

Take your time to look at an art work and see what kind of emotions or feelings it gives you.

I believe art is an important part of our lives because...

Art, design, and arcitecture are everywhere in your daily life, from the fork that you eat with to the packaging and design of your toothbrush, to the beautiful building that you pass, with its artworks in the lobby. It is very important to have art around you because it often brings you other thoughts or feelings, it can make you happy!
