I’m sure you remember the last amazing exhibition we had ‘Comfort Kills’ by Chelsea Gustafsson? Well for #onthefringe she has created these totally delightful naive artworks. Once again very affordable too so easy to include in your art collection. Take a peek at the link in profile and head to the current exhibition page. Thank you Chelsea for leaving your comfort zone and creating these little gems. I love them 😍 @chelsea_gustafsson #outsidethebox #chairs #fringe #exhibition #now #flinderslanegallery #chelseagustafsson #knowmyname

Please, take a seat... This is the last week to enjoy the first solo by Chelsea Gustafsson at FLG. 'Comfort Kills'ends this Saturday at 3pm so please get in before then! This piece is 'Seatless' 2019, oil on board, 20cm x 15cm, The chair is a powerful iconic image, inextricably linked to the human experience. Its form speaks of functionality and civility, of status, power and subservience, as well as suggesting moments of rest and reflection, and as such has made regular appearances throughout art history. There’s Rodin's Thinker (1880), sitting eternally pensive and soulful atop a nondescript but functional lump of rock. Vincent Van Gogh painted them with lit candles and pipes perched disconcertingly in their seats, suggesting both vulnerability and personal self-worth. Joseph Kosuth’s 1968 installation One and Three Chairs used the concept of the chair to question the codes by which we define experience, and in the late 1980’s YBA Sarah Lucas began utilising them as stand-ins for the sexual human body – all arms and legs and horizontal passive functionality. For Gustafsson, the chair possesses a warm familiarity, a playfulness and vibrancy that makes them a powerful motif, implicit in the domestic experience. Be it Dad’s favourite armchair, the kitchen stool guests gravitate toward or the plastic chair offered at a friendly backyard BBQ, they each recall social interactions, economic circumstances, daily rhythms, and self expression. But they also call to mind frivolous time wasting. (excerpt from catalogue essay by Phe Luxford) #seat #seatless #chelseagustafsson #knowmyname #collectable #comfortkills #flinderslanegallery

The still burgeoning career of artist Chelsea Gustafsson reveals both a painter of technical skill and a person in possession of a sharp sense of humour. Exploring concerns both social and personal; be it ocean pollution, consumerist clutter or the virtue of Australia’s native plant-life, Gustafsson utilises a visual language mixed with imagination and incongruity to speak affably of those issues facing contemporary society. In her latest exhibition, Comfort Kills, the seemingly benign and innocent domestic experience is used as a means to translate a complicit and critical worldview. Deploying a heterogeneous collection of chairs, found discarded on roadsides or still in service within homes, Gustafsson creates a series of traditional still-lives verging on portraiture to subvert the seemingly innocent act of ‘sitting’. Depicting these everyday physical supports and the sedentary act they represent as a form of social foolishness, the message behind this exhibition is at once both lighthearted and urgent; our lounging about might well bring about our downfall. (excerpt from catalogue essay by Phe Luxford 2019) This painting is ‘Marquee Verona Strung Up’ oil on board 75 x 100cm and is available!

Chelsea Gustafsson exhibition ‘Comfort Kills’ Day One. Please do join us and the artist for the opening party this Saturday 17 August from 1 -3 pm here on Level one of the Nicholas Building. This is a very special suite of works. To view the full online catalogue go to our link in the profile. For Gustafsson, the chair possesses a warm familiarity, a playfulness and vibrancy that makes them a powerful motif, implicit in the domestic experience. Be it Dad’s favourite armchair, the kitchen stool guests gravitate toward or the plastic chair offered at a friendly backyard BBQ, they each recall social interactions, economic circumstances, daily rhythms, and self expression. But they also call to mind frivolous time wasting. With titles like You Snooze, You Lose and Jason Reclining, it becomes clear that Gustafsson is not viewing the act of sitting as one of intense contemplation or social betterment. Held within each of her exquisitely detailed, gem-like panels, the artist’s choice to upend her subjects, to jumble them with domestic flotsam, serves to depict the perils of procrastination, of laziness, of idle modernity. These chairs and the lives led while relaxing in them become total folly.

Another ‘Keeping it Real’ online exhibition artist is Barwon Heads based Chelsea Gustafsson. This new work by Chelsea was a finalist in the EMSLA (Still Life award). It is titled ‘Still Life with Plastic Bag on Flowers’ and is 76 x 101cm. I’ve included here some details of the work too, so I can highlight for you the gorgeous little details like the flowers reflected in the goggly eyes! Love it Chels. @chelsea_gustafsson “The objects chosen for each composition have been selected for what they represent and how they interact with each other. They are the bric-a-brac of stuff I collect, sentimental objects, everyday items and the general accumulations of crafty bits that appear when living with kids. The individual items aren’t particularly out of the ordinary but when juxtaposed together become unique and sometimes seemingly nonsensical”.

Green- Oil & Acrylic on board. Chelsea Gustafsson... Still life has a long history. I think the best still life’s show or illustrate evidence of the actual time they were painted in. Boom has a collection of a recent show of paintings by Chelsea Gustafsson called Legacies. The paintings are small acute sharp balanced and very precise. Something else the compositions are arranged banal household kinda kitsch consumables..Stuff If our times!...Organised delicately piled and still-frozen...this tension seems vulnerable and completely unsustainable....Gustafsson’s Legacies offer lots of evocative scenarios for art sluth’s many more than the one you just read...Her show finishes today well worth a visit- accompanying the show is an eloquent statement about her recent paintings....Great stuff! #chelseagustafsson #boomgallery #thegoodshit #roalddahl

Finally made it too Boom Gallery to see the new show by Chelsea Gustaffson...seeing this work insitu is fantastic...her eye for detail is super. #chelseagustafsson #boomgallery #art #stilllife #geelong #newtown #newart #australianart #australianartist #newshow #newart #stilllife @chelsea_gustafsson @boomgallery

You've seen the amazing finished product of this piece but we wanted to share this amazing Work in Progress shot of Crest Up by @chelsea_gustafsson 10"x8",10.8x8.8"x1.75" with frame, Oil on Wood Panel available for purchase (link in bio) 👍👏😍 ~ When we asked Chelsea about her creative progress, she replied, "The creative process usually begins for me when I’m about to nod of to sleep, or I’m walking the dog – wherever my head has a bit of space from all the daily distractions. That’s when the seed is planted and from there I might research and scribble ideas and thumbnails or just launch into setting up a subject to photograph. From the photo I draw up my image, transfer it onto the painting surface and then pain and angst over it until I’m about three quarters through – usually the point I start to have some faith in what I’m doing or bin the idea all together!" ~ #4thyearanniversaryshow #flowerpeppergallery #chelseagustafsson #crest #up #wip #pasadena #oldpas #oldpasadena #la #laart #melbourne #aussieartist #artnews #artshow #onlyinoldpas #artinpasadena #oilpainting #painting #portrait #artistinterview

It's wonderful to hear artists talking about their creative process. Here is artist Chelsea Gustafsson's: ~~~ The creative process usually begins for me when I’m about to nod of to sleep, or I’m walking the dog – wherever my head has a bit of space from all the daily distractions. That’s when the seed is planted and from there I might research and scribble ideas and thumbnails or just launch into setting up a subject to photograph.

We get quite excited to read the artist interview ourselves! Hope you enjoy it as well! Here is part of the interview with Australia based artist Chelsea Gustafsson: ~~~ 1. How would you describe your own artwork? My paintings combine a minimalist aesthetic with detailed, realistic studies of my subjects. I give the subjects a lot of breathing space – a good dose of negative space around them. I like to explore contrasting elements, such as playing with the light for dramatic contrast. Sometimes I’ll choose a subject for it’s symbolism and then sometimes it’s just a straight up study of something I find quite beautiful, or something so ugly that it’s beautiful. Nothing’s off limits. 2. Is there a story behind this painting? This painting, Crest Up, is of local (Geelong, Aus) musician & artist Ok Sure (Akaysha). I wanted to do some figurative painting again and Akaysha has stunning features and an awesome wardrobe that influenced my decision to contact her to model for me! ~~~ Read more here: http://www.flower-pepper.com/shop/original-art/crest-up-by-chelsea-gustafsson/ (Link on Profile Page) ~~~ Crest Up by Chelsea Gustafsson, Oil on Wood Panel ~~~ #flowerpeppergallery #4thyearanniversaryshow #chelseagustafsson #crestup #oilpainting #realistic #portrait #beautiful #musician #artistinterview #artnews #artshow #pasadena #oldpasadena #oldpas #artinpasadena #onlyinoldpas

Crest Up by Chelsea Gustafsson for our new 4th Year Anniversary Show✨ ~~~ 10″ x 8″, 10.8″ x 8.8″ x 1.75″ with frame, Oil on Wood Panel, Available for purchase here: http://www.flower-pepper.com/shop/original-art/crest-up-by-chelsea-gustafsson/ (Link on Profile Page) ~~~ Chelsea grew up in a small rural community in Australia, later moving to Melbourne to study painting and sculpture. Her love has always been for painting and she has had a varied creative career: working in a sculptor’s studio for a period of time, the art department in the film & television industry and in graphic design before having kids, which she now juggles whilst creating her art in the coastal town of Barwon Heads. ~~~ #flowerpeppergallery #4thyearanniversaryshow #chelseagustafsson #art #australianart #australianartist #oilpainting #portrait #artshow #artnews #pasadena #oldpasadena #oldpas #artinpasadena #onlyinoldpas

Hope you are having a beautiful Friday morning now! Pictured here is Nature Is The Teacher Of Art Protea by Chelsea Gustafsson. ~~~ "The flower is a continuation in my work that serves as a symbol of guilt for our indulgent and excessive lifestyles. I once thought of a vase of lush flowers as an unnecessary pleasure: no practical qualities and very short term pleasure. With our exposure to sensational and tragic daily news stories I think it’s quite normal to feel helpless and guilty for our privileged lives. ~~~ Ironically, because of this I think it’s therefore important to surround ourselves with beauty and all that inspires and motivates us, so that we can aspire to function at our best which has a positive consequence with how we communicate with and treat others. This piece focuses on the beauty of a single waratah flower. It’s head and collar of leaves are almost dragon like, rising proud and powerful." - Chelsea Gustafsson ~~~ Chelsea is an Australian artist, from Barwon Heads. Her delicately detailed works often explore themes around society and the environment. ~~~ The texts on the painting are translated to "Nature is the teacher of art and science". We couldn't agree more! ~~~ Available at: https://www.flower-pepper.com/shop/original-art/nature-is-the-teacher-of-art-protea-by-chelsea-gustafsson/ Or direct link on our profile page. ~~~ #flowerpeppergallery #chelseagustafsson #nature #teacher #naturaartismagistra #protea #contemporaryart #realistic #painting #popsurrealism #oilpainting #australianartist #artgallery #laart #pasadena #oldpasadena #oldpas #artinpasadena

Everyone loves the simplistic beauty of this piece by the incredibly talented, Chelsea Gustafsson! 💖 This new take on traditional botanical prints is both fresh and distinguished with the reminder that Natura Artis Magistra, or translated in English, that Nature is The Teacher of Art. 🌿✨ Every detail of this piece draws you in and the light that falls upon this Banksia branch is as enlightened as the piece itself. --------------------------------------- Nature Is The Teacher of Art, Oil and Paint Pen on Wood Panel, 8" x 10", for our current exhibition, Foliage! 🌿 This piece is available for purchase on our website at flower-pepper.com #flowerpeppergallery #foliage #chelseagustafsson #contemporaryart #botanical #banksia #fauna #nature #study #australia #latin #light #lovely #painting #pasadena #oldpasadena #artinpasadena #laart #lagallery

Natura Artis Magistra is a well known Latin phrase meaning Nature Is The Teacher Of Art. 🌿 It is a phrase that takes time to sink in and could perhaps unfold in new ways over a lifetime. Artist Chelsea Gustafsson applies this phrase in the study of a single flower, revealing the inherent beauty of simplicity. 🌸✨ ------------------------------------------------- Nature Is The Teacher Of Art Protea, Oil and Paint Pen on Wood Panel, 8" x 10", for our current exhibition, Foliage.

Phew, I didn't know i could do that. Amazing results all over at this #chelseagustafsson workshop hosted by @boomgallery Just so you know, strawberries are a #type1diabetics best friend. Hardly any carbs, and can be eaten anytime. I chose strawberry today, because I'm always cutting them up, just like this. For my #bravekid who's got #type1diabetes
