Emily Heysen, the founder of Inartisan, builds upon her distinctive creative vision to create these large scale acrylic paintings.
Emily has inherited her passion for fine arts from her grandfather, renowned Australian landscape artists Sir Hans Heysen. Her paintings are characterised by rich pigments and bold shapes, punctuated by crisp details such as the silhouette of a branch or a dancing dotted line. Favouring abstract interior and abstract landscape scenes, Emily’s practice is complementary to the design vision of Inartisan.
The combination of sharp lines and delicate curves recalls both a vast horizon with scattered landmarks; and simultaneously, familiar shapes that elicit the sense of a welcoming home.
This play between nature and the home allows these paintings to create an atmosphere that is both warm and inviting, while also bringing a dynamic energy to the space in which they are displayed. Some of Emily’s paintings evoke movement and play, while others suggest a tranquil stillness
