  • Artist Statement

    Elizabeth Jakubiw’s landscapes are strongly reminiscent of the romantic 19th century tonality tradition, while using an impressionistic style to embrace the unique aspects of the scenes depicted.

     

    Sydney based, Jakubiw has traveled extensively around Australia, Europe and Latin America, working and studying both at home and abroad.

     

    The influence of these vast and varied environments is evident in much of her work. However, it is from her eastern European background that she has drawn the palette and mood for the majority of her works. Whether a small intimate work on paper or a more grandly scaled oil on canvas, Jakubiw’s works display great sensitivity. The viewer feels at once, both completely present at the scene yet somehow protected from the harshness of the environment- the vista is provided by the artist from a safe vantage point.

     

    Jakubiw is a prolific painter who has been consistently producing and exhibiting new series since 1993.

     

    Her works are held in a great number of private Australian collections.
