This is a two panel piece showing a wide vista over Win Hill in the Peak District. The image was sent to me by an archaeology friend, who knew I needed images to work from during lockdown as I couldn’t go out to take my own photographs. As it was a wide panoramic view, it perfectly suited the diptych format. Harebells are one of my all time favourite flowers. I love their delicacy and the heavenly powder blue. The dimensions provided are for each separate panel. To hang the panels side by side, you’d need to allow a gap of approximately 5cm. The work is currently unframed, but allowing for narrow frames, which would add approximately 1-2cm to each edge, overall the width would be approximately 183cm, framed.
Elaine Kazimierczuk studied chemistry at university and taught for many years before becoming a professional artist. She has written and illustrated a series of books on local history besides a monograph on the religious works of the prominent sculptor Peter Eugene Ball, with whom she collaborated on many major commissions. She is a trustee of Midlands-based Ice-age Archaeological Insights and produces visual interpretations of prehistoric people and their environment. In addition to the demand for her landscapes, there is a growing clientele for her portraiture. She has been shortlisted for the 2016 BP National Portrait Award. Many of Elaine Kazimierczuk’s works are based on interpretations of intimately-known localities, frequently, but not exclusively, in her native Nottinghamshire. In her semi-abstract studies of meadows, trees and hedgerows, she achieves a tension between looseness and control, which enables her to convey that intricate assembly of wild beauty. Frequently working on a red ground, which resonates with the vibrant overpainting, she adopts a bold approach, so that there is an evident freedom, just short of capriciousness, either of hand or eye, in the brushwork. Her works represent the ordered chaos of the natural world with energy and vitality. Elaine Kazimierczuk has recently been awarded the Mary Moser Prize for 2018. This is an Oxfordshire Art Weeks prize awarded to a person who has changed career and taken up art professionally later in life.
