Shanti Shea An
Shanti Shea An is an emerging artist whose painterly sensitivity continues in the tradition of Morandi. Her contemplative interior scenes dance in soft sunset hues. Long shafts of light fall along the floor becoming compositional elements of shape and colour. The recurring motif of windows mirrors the intimate works themselves – these small scenes offer glimpses of brief moments in time, forever immortalised in the luminously painted surface.
Shea An completed her Bachelor of Visual Arts (First Class Honours) in painting from the Australian National University in 2017 and was also awarded the University Medal. She has exhibited in numerous group shows across Australia as well as a solo show No Newness at The Front Gallery, ACT (2017).
