Works in oil canvas | Shayne Chester
My work explores two themes generally, Romantic landscapes (inspired very much by artists like Turner and Caspar Davis Friedrich) from the imagination and the local urban landscape where I live, in Sydney Australia.
All paintings are oil canvas, though I also used mixed media. The large work, “The Way Through” for example, describes my journey through six months of chemotherapy.
I hold an auction annually of my work and donate all the funds to refugee support networks; I can’t think of a better purpose for my art than to provide food, shelter, medical help etc., for those who have nothing.
