Self taught artist James Ettelson (age 26), is one of Australia’s emerging modern contemporary painters. He has developed a unique intricate style of elaborate detailed of dot marks and colours, which combines traditional Aboriginal painting techniques with pop art.
Using acrylics and mixed mediums, Ettelson has combined the colour and vibrance of pop art, with the complexity, fluidity and stippling technique of traditional Aboriginal art. As a result, he has created a very unique set of works. As apposed to using a standard stereo-gram process of moderately distorting a repeated, horizontal pattern to create the illusion of depth; Ettleson has applied visible depth within his paintings by applying layer upon layer of paint and pattern.
Ettelson’s intentions are to create works which an audience does not grow tired of viewing; and so, has produced works so involved that the longer you look, the more you see. With each fresh view the works transform, and the observer is exposed to something entirely different.
