The Dutch contemporary art painter Ella Joosten (1954) lives and works in Eindhoven, in the South of The Netherlands. Her paintings have a strong appearance: They are energetic, humoresque, and full of bright colours. Her art is fresh, and cannot abstain from a certain magic. Although she likes multiple styles, both her earlier abstract paintings, and her current figurative style fit expressionism quite well. In her large art studio she creates acrylic paintings and mixed media in different formats suited for homes, offices, big meeting rooms, and other public places, Also she designs personal business gifts and small art objects. She worked as a professional visual artist for over 25 years. Her paintings have been shown at various exhibitions, got reproduced in several books and art catalogues, and were reviewed in several art magazins. Local municipalities, companies, private institutions, and individual art collectors commissioned her to produce special works of art.
Painting is for Ella Joosten the ultimate synergy of both thinking and feeling: “My work does not appear in a vacuum. I cannot escape the constant flux of information. Amidst that information jungle, I am working quite solitary, and deliberately choose to be most selective. The essential part of my work is analyzing the few things I feel attracted to. This leads to series of paintings, in which I try to develop my artistic understanding of the interplay between form, composition and colour. My process of working is both emotional and conceptual, at the same time.”
