About Astrig Akseralian

 
 
  • Biography
    I am a full time artist working in pastels, acrylics, collage. I enjoy experimenting with different materials and try to capture the mood of my subjects be they human or landscapes. Colour is one of the key elements for me and I find that preparing my papers using strong acrylic backgrounds helps to generate an atmosphere and an energy to work with and sometimes against. I work into the prepared surfaces with soft pastel and pastel pencils. I also work onto prepared pages of old text books enjoying the contrasts between text and image. 
    As far as it is possible I work directly from models and landscapes and from my sketchbooks.
