Nel ten Wolde
Originating from the Netherlands, Nel ten Wolde migrated to Australia in 1986. Since this move, Nel has enjoyed the possibilities of travelling internationally, particularly throughout Europe, seeking inspiration from different countries and cultures. She has been invited multiple times to take part as artist in residence, working alongside and collaborating with other artists. Whilst in Melbourne, her work is focused on abstract landscape oil paintings in varied sizes.
When working as Artist in residence she mainly works on collages with photos taken by her on long walks, mostly over old pilgrim routes, through different countries. She likes to restrict herself with the materials, to force herself to get on to other ideas to create the collages.
Most recently she started to make collages on iPad, photos taken of different materials over each other, floating in water, with already existing photos. Then she adds drawing and painting on iPad.
