About Madeleine Elkin

Oil Painting

Renowned South Australian landscape impressionist, Madeleine Elkin, specialises in the art of capturing nature's essence through the vibrant strokes of her palette knife. Residing in the picturesque Clayton Bay, she draws inspiration from the lower lakes country district that envelops her, forging a profound connection with the ever-changing environment.

Immersed in the tranquil beauty of her surroundings, Madeleine translates the peace and contentment she finds into her oil paintings. Her work is a testament to the kaleidoscope of colours and seasons that grace the natural world, with an emphasis on the fleeting play of light. Rather than aiming for a literal representation, Madeleine seeks to convey the mood and emotion of a place, infusing her canvases with splashes of colour and bold contrasts.

Employing palette knives and paint pushers, Madeleine skilfully carves into the layers of paint, creating a tactile and textured experience that mirrors the ambiguity of life itself. Her artistic process goes beyond the visual, aiming to evoke a visceral response from the viewer—a connection with Mother Nature that transcends the canvas.

 In her own words, "I want the viewer to truly see, and feel, and connect with Mother Nature, and become one with her. When you do that, you truly find peace and contentment." 

Madeleine Elkin's work is a testament to the transformative power of art in fostering a deep, spiritual connection with the natural world.
